'The Governess' from Surreal Fashion by Miss Aniela. A piece with fast-growing interest in the Surreal Fashion collection.
"The Governess was shot in the exclusive, beautiful old Elizabeth Room of Belvoir Castle. With even a carpet with a history of 500 years, we had to be incredibly sensitive staging the first fashion shoot this room has seen. The hair was prepared for weeks prior by hair artist Ceri Cushen, the Victorian costume was embellished with layers of curtains to form a new modern "dress" installed diligently by the team over hours. The result is strikingly surreal, stitched to show off the absolute breathtaking beauty of the gilt, furniture and ceiling murals."

About the Artist
British artist Miss Aniela (Natalie Dybisz, b. 1986) mixes art and fashion photography to create a fine balance of contemporary creativity. Her work centres on a fusion of traditional imagery and digitally enhanced motifs, interweaving in a surreal composition.
Her longstanding collection Surreal Fashion has been exhibited and collected all over the globe. In the imagery, Miss Aniela depicts contemporary models with a reference to Renaissance and Dutch masters, shooting in stately home settings across Europe and US. Larger-than-life characters preside over a dreamlike tableaux of chandeliers, taxidermy and four-poster beds; motifs for another, utopic world of the past that we long to inhabit.
