It was not the first time I dressed in a military style, my inspiration came from the age of Napoleon. During this age all the European General's military looked very decorative, elegant yet wearing this outfit showed leadership and position. Especiall Napoleon was very arrogant, a man but thought himself high above all else s of course he was famous for his vanity and outfit. Also a part from the French military during this period the Russian army at this point or should I say General had a very docorated and flamboyant style to their outfits.
I always thought when looking at films as well that on screen it captured well the character or the role, for films of photography it looks so interesting and cool.Special in it's design, and outfits from The Ancient Greeks, Romans, Ottoman empire, Chinese Achient and then to this more recent or closer to the modern age of Generals such as Napoleon and a military style of Russia all had the same way to design a outfit . To make a ancient or modern soldier (warriors) outfit look stylish and elegant yet at the same time Convey Force and Power a sense of Domination and leadership. This, I always thought to be a interesting mixture.
