20/6/12 – Skeletons in Fashion
I discovered an image of a skeleton dress from another blog, while searching through the internet. The dark fabric contrasts with the red skeletal image, which appears quite similar to an X-Ray scan. One could argue that the image of the skeleton corresponds with the person’s movements, which creates a very interesting effect.
I am beginning to notice that the skeleton is gaining popularity within the fashion industry, which also questions society’s attraction to death.
