About the Book
As an artist I have always been interested in fashion magazines and as an illustrator I wanted to explore ways in which I could portray the eight chosen horoscopes in a fashionable and sculptural style.
I aimed to subvert low technical materials to create costumes that conceal the models face. This is because the human face gives some insight about the individual; so when the facial features are obscured, the viewer can become the characters created.
I carefully selected materials that have associations with the characteristics from each star sign. For example, the use of road signs for Pisces represents the characteristic of indecisiveness. The materials themselves are then adding a further layer to my work's underlying narrative.
I have transformed my 2-D designs into 3-D human sculptures, and then re-translated the captured moment into a photographic format that is suited to a fashion editorial context.
