Pretty Deadly

Designer Concept:

This design was created for an Architectural & Botanical Mashup themed fashion show where designers were given a piece or architecture and a botanical element to inspire their design. I received the Fox Theatre in Detroit and the Foxglove plant. The interior of the Fox Theatre has many Egyptian motifs, and this revelation led me to an article that discussed how Egyptians knowingly used toxic chemicals in their makeup (New York Times 2010). I used this information and developed this concept; My design shows that beauty is worth the pain and sacrifice, this idea that beauty comes at a price is a challenge that many people face in today’s society. At what point is sacrifice, too harmful?
