SICKLY SWEET SUBURBIA
A LOST RESORT
THE NOTION OF ROMANCE
Sickly Sweet Suburbia - Graduate Collection. A collection of which captures the lives of the plastic fantastic housewives of 1950's Suburbia. Inspired by the personas of the naively sweet and the disturbingly sickly, the collection celebrates Americana, explores the scandal and screams femininity, whilst experimenting with colour, print & texture.

William Eggleston & Gregory Crewson's mysterious narratives of the suburban photographs inspired the personas of my six women.
The Six Personas: 1. The Hopeless Romantic - No matter how often love screws her over, she will always cherish the next man. She is kind hearted, but lives in a romantic fantasy. 2. The Self-Initiated Detective - The neighbourhood watch, she knows everything, but the one secret she hopes to discover. This distracts her from her mundane, seemingly perfect life.
3.The Peacock Amongst Pigeons - Her flamboyancy is unnurtured & unwelcome amongst the sea of grey. Her dormant body has given way to the drone of conformism. She longs to break free. 4. The Accidental Murderer - In a whirlwind of passion & spite, she committed to something that will always haunt her. Despite her cunning & smarts, her defences let her down & now she must fake it to survive. 5. The Rich Bitch - She has everything she desires, so now she wants what money can't buy, what doesn't belong to her... 6. The Bold & The Beautiful - She is powerful & cunning, with a wild spark that could ignite at any point. She knows how to manipulate both men & women to get just what she wants.
