ETHNIC PROJECT

Henry VS. Bling-Bling

During the Ethnic course I was inspired by the Bling Bling society that existed in the late 1980s in the USA. I examined the clothing, eclectic and features of the Bling society in comparison with King Henry VIII from England. Both share the same language based on showcase, vanity and shofoni. The references to the collection are taken from the street wearclothing, ending in high fashion. I created a photo type of King Henry and at this point I started the collection design. Nowadays, in a showy, eye popping world I used humor that is relevant to that time.
