Taylor Swift's Folklore Lookbook
When Taylor Swift released her seventh studio album IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC, I - like the majority of the population - had it on repeat throughout much of quarantine. Tay is nothing if not innovative, and manages to constantly and successfully reinvent her sound and aesthetic for each of her albums. Folklore is no exception.
I love the idea of using one medium of art to inspire another, so I decided to create this Plus-Size Lookbook based on each of the seventeen tracks within the album (yeah that's right, including the lakes). Creating these looks and photos took about a month and a half of planning, collaboration, and execution with my incredible photographer and friend, Jenna Rinicker (more on her later).
If nothing else, this moody, contemplative, and woodsy lookbook was SO MUCH FUN to create and shoot. I hope you enjoy!
Here! We! Go!
"i'm doing good, i'm on some new shit"
"when you are young they assume you know nothing"
the last great american dynasty
"she had a marvelous time ruining everything"
"i gave so many signs"
my tears ricochet
"you know i didn't want to have to haunt you"
"i'm still trying everything to keep you looking at me"
"and though i can't recall your face, i still got love for you"
"for me it was enough, to live for the hope of it all"
this is me trying
"they told me all of my cages were mental, so i got wasted like all my potential"
"what started in beautiful rooms, ends with meetings in parking lots"
"time, mystical time, cutting me open then healing me fine"
"what a shame she went mad"
"and some things you just can't speak about"
"yeah i showed up at your party"
"the devil's in the details, but you've got a friend in me"
"you know i left a part of me back in new york"
the lakes - bonus track
"what should be over burrowed under my skin"

The biggest thanks in the WORLD to Jenna Rinicker. When I originally asked her to help me with this I was feeling a little silly for wanting to dive head-first into the mammoth project just for fun, but she not only met me where I was but RAN with it and made the process so much more enjoyable and fun. She is truly a visionary and has an eye for capturing the perfect shot. I couldn't emphatically recommend her more - BOOK HER NOW!!!
All the details for all the pieces are linked below each photo and on my SHOP page! I added dupes for anything that is sold out or unavailable.
What album should we do next!?
