Extravagance can be deceptive. Three art forms – photography, styling & illustration – are thus merged to create The Bizarreness Called Beauty by Lucky Dubz Trifonas, a visual portrait of the unfavourable side of contemporary fashion industry.
The attempt was to break the veil that exists between the fact and fiction of fashion business. Sexualising and objectifying models are practices that are sustained casually off and through the ramp. Shaking away this indifference, these realities are openly brought to the forefront.
Saying the Truth
Bad dreams, sinful desires and strange fashion statements have been constantly represented throughout the series. Precise photography and loud hairstyles provide a conducive environment to depict these representations.
What resulted was a not-so-pretty picture of what is otherwise posed as charming. Pronouncing loudly the uncharismatic in a brave tone, this depiction is a pointed stare into the ugly traditions and practices thriving within the fashion world.
