Armin Morbach for Tush 9

Armin Morbach for Tush Magazine, Spring/Summer 2016

Armin Morbach shoots a freak-show of high fashion for Tush Magazine, S/S 2016. Camouflaged coverings entice and excite as the campaign of strange aims to take flight. A mutiny of makeup begins as Loni Baur corrals the chaos of neo-cosmetics to the page. Visionary imagery invites the fertile mind to grow, with abstract innovation designed to inspire. Breaking bad… the black netting brings a veiled overlay, with faux eyes glued outside, while red (real) lips radiant from inside.
