An image of a girl holding up a photo of the face of a Barbie doll. I love this piece as it implies that society and the media portray an image of 'the perfect and beautiful woman' and its all girls ever want to be and such importance is put upon it, however the perfect woman isn't real, it is only plastic or models have been photo-shopped etc.
My inspiration for this collection derived from the archetypes of Carl Jung. In particular: the shadow, the persona and the self. Real pressed flowers are encapsulated in contrasting pleated plastic with the same flowers printed and embroidered onto silks. Each garment forms part of a narrative that represents the human evolution of consciousness that altogether create a glamorous, modern yet functional collection.
This is attributed to Aisling Farrell, but I believe it's really the work of Maia Bergman as part of her fashion studies finals collection. This glorious texture uses plastic beads in delicious colors. Find more at http://1granary.com/central-saint-martins-fashion/ba-final-collections/maia-bergman/
