-“the process of reconstructing or repairing parts of the body by the transfer of tissue, either in the treatment of injury or for cosmetic reasons.”-
This is a collection of visual outcomes that I created as a response to constant beauty pressure for fashion purposes. I did this under the overall aspect “Fashion and the body” for the unit Fashion Promotion 1 at the Manchester Fashion Institute.
A collection of creatively expressed visual research in order to express my ideas that will help me developing a concept.
FIRST OUTCOME: 3D PIECES “BANDAGES”
My 3D outcomes were headpieces that should look like bandages. All three headpieces express the contradiction of beauty and plastic surgeries in a creative way. All of them show the death of the natural beauty. In the first one this is expressed by dead butterflies, the second one looks like a graveside and the third one hides the face.
SECOND OUTCOME: PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES: “BEFORE THE SURGERY”
These pictures should visualise the natural beauty before the surgery and how much the patient is willing to sacrifice their life for fashion. To intense the atmosphere I chose a waiting room setting for the shoot.
THIRD OUTCOME: MOVING IMAGE “AFTER THE SURGERY”
FOURTH OUTCOME: MAGAZINE “BEAUTY”
The Magazine “BEAUTY” shows the contradiction between the death of the natural beauty and plastic surgeries. It includes my imagery. To underline the plastic aspect I sewed the magazine in with plastic.
All the styling, set design, ideas, research, filming and outcomes are mine and produced by myself. Many thanks to my two models for supporting and communicating my concepts.
