So today was last Residency day at Art Fix….what a fantastic, productive week it’s been…….
I’ve been inspired by the works of Alexander Mc Queen from the Savage Beauty Show at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Inspired from edgy trends and beautiful things to adorn my dolls, there is also a darker side to my thoughts…..underneath the aesthetics of Fashion lies dark truths….exploited interns being used for slave labour for high end Fashion Brands and slave labour in sweat shops for lower priced high street labels.
Sometimes I forget this….shop in certain places as I love the clothes and they’re affordable (fast fashion) but then feel sad when i think of the reason they’ve been made so cheaply. I also adore Illustrating Fashion and exploring the craftsmanship behind these couture and high end labels…so I’m torn! My dolls fit this image perfectly, aesthetic and sweet but real they’re not.
