“Referencing visible fashion advertisements?” Original or Pretend?

April 20, 2008

Cool Hunting have just covered this show that’s on in Montre-al. Sounds interesting. But do you see the comparison between religious artifacts and successful fashion shoots?

At first, you think naaa-ah. But then after a while; you’re like, of course this makes sense! We live in such a religious-sorry, Christian influenced religious society, that it’d make sense that subconsciously the public is attracted to what they know and remember?

It’s like that scene in A Clockwork Orange, were he has all those images being sent to him to try and reform him-so basically certain images will mean certain things…so he would ‘react’ a certain way in order to rehabilitate him.

Soo-keeping that thought process in mind, it’s pretty much parallel to the way we live now.

Of course, I’ll let you make your own mind up….
