Allen Moore

Allen owns and operates The Institute for Fashion Media, an educational resource serving individuals and companies involved in the fashion industry.

Allen has always had a deep appreciation for the beauty of the female form, so it is a natural thing for him to blend this into the specialized genre of fashion nude illustration. Working with a highly skilled team, Allen crafts evocative fashion nude images that clients find highly desirable in today’s fashion editorial market.

Allen will showcase his cross-genre shoots of fashion nudes, explain latest seasonal fashion lifestyle trends, will give insights on styling, advanced makeup techniques and the importance of narrative story telling.
