Cirque du Soleil has a Kurios fashion shoot with Lookbook Atlanta


Cirque Du Soleil's Kurios is filled with quirk, whimsy and steam punk style.

And while the show is considered Cirque at its best , those same qualities make it the perfect inspiration for fashion.

“Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities,” is now showing at Atlantic Station. This week, some of the performers took time out of their busy schedules to take part in a fashion shoot with Lookbook Atlanta .

Lookbook Atlanta, an insider's guide to the best food, fashion and fun the city has to offer, pulled together some of Atlanta's most talented fashion flock to make it all happen.

Stay tuned for a big reveal of the fashion spread as well as video and photo galleries from the shoot. For now, here is a sneak peek of what is to come.

The Lookbook team set up shots right on the Cirque stage.
