What's This?

Ajax Lee is a talented freelance photographer, art director and retoucher based in Taipei, Taiwan. She studied Visual Communication at National Yunlin University of Science and Technology. Ajax passionates about fashion & trends. For her newest series “Reality Paper Doll”, Lee transforms the iconic design of fashion history from 30s~2010 by combining photography with paper cutouts.

My initial plan was to use the 2016 Spring/Summer collection as my sketchbook for paper dolls, but I felt like they lacked the sense of representation. On top of that, since I am already going to “pay tribute,” I might as well pay tribute to the classics. For that, I spent a lot of time doing research and studying history of fashion design; then, finally, I picked out a selection of clothes ranging from the 1930 Lobster Dress by Elsa Schiaparaelli to the 2010 Viktor & Rolf—a total of nine classic designs.
