confinement part 2…

This was the second sample I done using string to “cage” the mannequin but this time I also used bandages, at this point I was planning for the photo shoot and was trying to picture different things I could do and the different types of images I could take.

I like how the string and the bandages look next to each other, I feel the string looks tighter and stronger vs. the bandage, and it would press and burn the skin, whereas the bandages would just softly lay on top, but visually the bandages offer up something more, especially since we associate them with injuries and as a way to “fix something which is broken”, so using them almost tells a story and obviously makes the viewer wonder.

late night read…

This is a Modern Matter Magazine, before buying this copy I had never heard of them before.

I was actually looking for inspiration for my art project and decided to go to one of my favorite magazine stores in Soho, I tend to go there because I just love discovering new magazine and love finding “lost treasures”

Even though this magazine was encased in a plastic bag meaning, I couldn’t flip through it to see what was inside, I felt the cover was strong and macabre enough to help me out with my project, especially since the quote on the cover reads “Someone wants to cut a hole in you and fuck you through it, Buddy”.

I love the look and feel of this magazine, it feels strong, expensive and dangerous and I love that!!

I love the imagery inside and how it is unapologetically what it is, they stand by what they put inside it, and aren’t worried with making it “pretty”, its through provoking and makes you think twice about certain situations… definitely an interesting read.

savage beauty…

Even though this is an exhibition I went to a year ago, for completely different reasons, this is this a trip I find inspiring, at the time I went because my sole focus was on fashion, and even though this is still something I am interested in, I now see how it is so much more than that.

The dark romantic nature of his work is truly astounding, and I often catch myself looking back to it for inspiration, its amazing how his work transcends time and will continue to inspire millions for years to come!

outfit of the day: cute comfort…

I really liked this outfit; I felt that I look well-put together yet still casual and fun! I think for the most part that is due to the jumper and the bag, because they were so well made and fit me very well, it gave off a slight sophistication. The flannel and the ripped jeans are an easy way to add some casual attitude to an outfit that gives you space to be fun and chill.

As time goes one I tend to learn and notice that it’s the simple, well-put outfits that have the biggest impact.
