THE CLOTHING | THE BODY
The fashion industry has come a long way since the supermodel era of the 1980s and '90s. Back then, the vast majority of models were thin, and young, with a few exceptions. In recent years, we're seeing more models of colour, more plus-size models, and models of different ages embracing every aspect of themselves. As a fashion photographer, I want to explore ways these “unrealistic” images impact the ‘real image ‘of women's bodies. My current project named The body – The clothing focuses on how body image and body positivity in women are portrayed in today’s world. How we see ourselves in certain clothes and how others see us may affect the way we perceive ourselves. By collaborating with a fashion clothing line Stush Apparel which emphasises empowering women to love the skin they’re in all shapes and sizes.
