It sometimes seems strange that one would use black and white in fashion, since fashion can rely on colour so much, especially when making a statement. But then again black and white also puts more emphasis on the designs, the style, the tailoring. It also can create a dark and mysterious or rocky and edgy mood and reminds us of the classic and chic styles of French Film Noir. Personally sometimes I feel black and white works better, it's striking and simple and allows for one to see the clothes without distraction, also it can heighten the lighten effects and create better shadows.
