Video: Billy for APCY

28 December 2012

Today we present you with a beautiful video from Cecilie Harris’ editorial featuring Billy Moran at M+P Models. This fashion short brings to life the 6-page editorial in "A Place Called Youth". The story touches on the contrasts between the two worlds a male model lives in: The hectic world of fashion where the boy often becomes another person entirely and that of their own personal space.

The wonderful styling of Krishan Parmar highlights further the visual impact of both worlds and the vast differences between them. In the video Billy is first featured in his full "fashion uniform" which is removed garment by garment, till we are down to the boy himself, all revealed. Dressed in high fashion designs, complete with a mask, feathers and furs and a chunky statement necklace by designers including Little Shilpa, Jenny Schwarz and Charlotte Valkemiers.

For a short time he lays unadorned on the bed with nothing to hide behind, until it's time to get to work again, this time in bright pop colours, even more of a contrast to his own personality. Second time around we see Billy dressed head to toe in candy colours, with summer brights in the form of a jacket by Meat Clothing and a beautiful pair of peach coloured shorts by Trine Lindegaard. Other designs featured in the shoot include garments by Baartmans & Siegel, Jane Bowler and Marry Me – Jimmy Paul.

The two states of Billy - the fashion model and the boy - are further enhanced by the move from black and white film to colour as well as the disparity between the modern fashions and the homely setting.

Make sure you check out Cecilie’s full editorial in the new issue to see the images in all their printed glory, but do keep an eye out as we will be posting a taster of the editorial photographs on the Boys by Girls site very soon!
