Katie Fogarty in Harper’s BAZAAR HK by Benjamin Kanarek – Haute Couture

Tale-of-the-Unexpected-DoveTale of the Unexpected…

Started as an idea to tell a Classic Fairy Tale format Children’s Story, but without the classically known subject matter such as Cinderella, Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland etc… They “kind of” look familiar, but aren’t really, as they did not exist until they were created for this production. These individual images or mini synopsis’s each tell a little story of their own and we will leave it up to you the reader to interpret them in your own “Fashion” (pardon the pun).

Katie Fogarty stars in the fabulous, ferociously funny, freaky film “The 7 Tales of Katie in Kinderland” as the wonderfully witty “Wizard of Westergarten” in the County of Cormilligan (Try saying that after a few drinks).

“The 7 Tales of Katie in Kinderland”

Where the magnificent Fall-Winter 2010-2011 Haute Couture Collections feature, Chanel Couture by Karl Lagerfeld, Dior Haute Couture by John Galliano, Armani Privé by Giorgio Armani, Gaultier Paris by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Valentino Couture by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccoli and two new comers Jantaminiau Couture by Jan Taminiau from Holland and French designer Alexandre Vauthier for his Couture line and who has been the sweetheart of the press for several seasons.

Make up your own Tale based on a particular image and we will publish our favourites and link to your blog, website, myspace, photo bucket site, etc. Just send your story to: info@benjaminkanarekblog.com

    Such incredible images. I’m definitely going to give this a go. Beautiful. And thank you for such a wonderful idea! I hope you gets lots of great reads.

  • Well Kristi, I am waiting for you to write a vignette for one of the images.

    • That would be brilliant – I may challenge writers to do this, too. They’re amazing inspiration

  • I’m amazed by the visual stories you’ve constructed. I think fantasy writers’ minds will be blown from seeing these…I know mine is.

  • These are great! I love the behind the scenes videos – very interesting to watch. I actually thought the arm was streched in the first picture, but it’s really that long. Wow! 🙂

  • Marq

    Great concept execution by you and the team. Just love the perspective and illusion on the coffee pot shot. I also adore Katie’s flowing big hair!
