Welcome to Trendsetter!
The newest high fashion competition where you can show off your creativity and your style for a wide variety of assignments. Each assignment will have a different theme which can range from punk fashion to fantasy couture, this competition will test your ability to create high fashion images with completely different themes.

I will be accepting female and male models this cycle!

The competition will have 10 assignments in total excluding the mock and will begin on 15th June or sooner if we get a substantial amount of interest as I know many of you will be busy leading up till then so hopefully that will give you time to be able to commit to the competition!

    Models, your first assignments were all great and showed you all have potential to be the next trendsetter! This week you have two assignments to complete as I am going on holiday until the 2nd August and these two assignments will both be the only non elimination assignments in the competition!

    Assignment One - Sporty Editorials

    Your first assignment this round is a sporty editorial shoot, from tennis to trampolining I want you to create a high fashion editorial shoot based around a certain sport. You should be wearing attire that is reminiscent of your chosen sport and perhaps equipment etc. but remember this is a fashion competition so keep it fashionable!


    Requirements
    Thin Black Border
    Sports Attire
    High Fashion

    8e1bd9d6397540e0bd3c0ce43661baa2-1.jpg

    Assignment Two - High Contrast

    Your second assignment this round requires a lot of creativity. This shoot requires a high contrast section to your black and white image ( look at the example image for an idea of what I'm looking for .) You can take this fairly loose theme and use it however you want to. Your styling should be extreme high fashion! Good Luck!


    Requirements
    Thin Black Border
    High Contrast Image
    Extreme High Fashion Styling
    Black & White

    Finally the scores for your mock assignment are here! You all did a brilliant job of creating rebellious looking shots and I can't wait to see what you create for the upcoming rounds! Here are your scores...

    FIRST CALL OUT - SOFIA & SARAI
    imageedit_4_4850053604_zpsaewsqsl9.png

    MONSTER

    Styling - 10/10
    Location / Set - 5/5
    Quality - 4/5
    Pose - 5/5
    Creativity - 9/10
    Requirements - 5/5
    Overall Image - 8/10
    Total - 46/50

    I have almost no complaints about this image Sofia, you did an amazing job of punk fashion and I love the set you've chosen and the dark, grungy tones you used here. My only minor issue with this shot is that your hair drawing looks slightly flat as there aren't too many shadows and highlights which would help give it more depth. But overall this image was great for the assignment, brilliant job!

    SECOND CALL OUT - LADY & HARLEY BLAND
    18560081316_bee2871b91_o.png

    MONSTER

    Styling - 9/10
    Location / Set - 5/5
    Quality - 4/5
    Pose - 3/5
    Creativity - 10/10
    Requirements - 5/5
    Overall Image - 9/10
    Total - 45/50

    I absolutely love your styling Lady, it's punky, rebellious and brilliant although I'm not too sure on the headpiece although it does look quite high fashion and out there! I love your set it is perfect for this assignment. Overall I don't have too many complaints about the shot although the pose doesn't show much of a rebellious attitude but overall a great shot!

    THIRD CALL OUT - HEATHER & JAMIE FULTON
    18994272898_85f4491526_o.jpg

    MONSTER

    Styling - 10/10
    Location / Set - 5/5
    Quality - 3/5
    Pose - 3/5
    Creativity - 10/10
    Requirements - 4/5
    Overall Image - 8/10
    Total - 43/50

    I love this Heather! Jamie's styling is brilliant and your location is great although the quality of it is a bit off unfortunately in comparison to your model. I'm not the biggest fan of the pose as it doesn't show a very punk attitude I would have preferred something more fierce and high fashion but overall I think this is a great shot!

    FOURTH CALL OUT - ADRIANA & MACY CREWS
    rcNbw6k.jpg

    MONSTER

    Styling - 8/10
    Location / Set - 3/5
    Quality - 4/5
    Pose - 4/5
    Creativity - 8/10
    Requirements - 5/5
    Overall Image - 8/10
    Total - 40/50

    Great shot Adriana! I like your styling for the most part, the tartan skirt is great! I would have preferred Macy to have a more wacky, punky hairstyle rather than it just naturally and loose perhaps shaved or dyed an unnatural colour. Your set is great but the quality and brightness of it don't match the quality of your model which makes the shot look a bit off but overall this shot is brilliant!

    FIFTH CALL OUT - KYLE & KEELY MAISON
    19183136759_c3699ff0f1_z.jpg

    MONSTER

    Styling - 8/10
    Location / Set - 3/5
    Quality - 4/5
    Pose - 5/5
    Creativity - 8/10
    Requirements - 4/5
    Overall Image - 7/10
    Total - 39/50

    I love your styling here Kyle, Keely looks great! Her pose is brilliant and very high fashion. I'm not the biggest fan of the set though as when I think of punk I don't really think of a tropical island but you made it work here which is great. I think if the image was a bit darker it would have been more reminiscent of the grungy elements of punk. Overall a great image!

    SIXTH CALL OUT - ELI & BLAKE RUSH
    possa12_zpsbe4dpqsv.jpg

    MONSTER

    Styling - 7/10
    Location / Set - 4/5
    Quality - 4/5
    Pose - 4/5
    Creativity - 8/10
    Requirements - 4/5
    Overall Image - 7/10
    Total - 38/50

    Lovely image Eli! I like your styling for the most part but to me it isn't very reminiscent of punk styling as it is too coordinated and not edgy enough maybe some fishnets and a spiked hairstyle would have helped make Blake look more edgy! I like your set here but the quality of it doesn't match Blake too well. Your pose also could have been more strong and fierce to give Blake a more rebellious look in this shot! Overall not too bad of a shot Eli, can't wait to see what you come up with next round!

    SEVENTH CALL OUT - SOCAL & STELLA THORNE
    18815327732_fbde0f6ab2_o.jpg

    MONSTER

    Styling - 8/10
    Location / Set - 4/5
    Quality - 3/5
    Pose - 4/5
    Creativity - 7/10
    Requirements - 4/5
    Overall Image - 7/10
    Total - 37/50

    Nice shot Socal, I love your styling it is very different and unique which I like! Your location is good, I love the graffiti on the wall and I must say your hairstyle is very reminiscent of punk style here with the shaved head! The main hindrance here is the quality as the filter you've used degrades the quality of the image, overall not too bad Socal, keep it up!
