Though Ulysses is renowned in literary circles for its ground breaking technique and psychological exploration, it was written as a celebration of the 'everyman.' The novel has been so critically explored that it has gained a reputation of being unreadable by the ordinary people for whom it was intended. This book aspires to reconnect Ulysses to the everyday lives of modern people through a series of fashion-based images. The publication of Ulysses was a landmark event in the development of Modernist literature. Through the first half of the 20th century, fashion design tracked and echoed trends in Modern Art. The development of Modernism can be followed in the progression of fashion design from the heavily corseted silhouettes that reflected Art Nouveau interpretation of the female form at the time of the novel's appearance. As Joyce traces Homer's Odyssey, my images trace the novel itself with one image representing the theme and mood of each part, paying attention to the colours and art style represented therein. I have focused on pivotal events in each episode which offer the potential for a visible visual link to the central storyline.
