Lauren Greenwood S/S 2012

" S Y N T H E T I C // I D O L A T R Y "


This is a collection that references a diverse body of research. I began by exploring the diversity and conflict in the representation of the Virgin throughout different Catholic cultures – from the vibrant, synthetic blend of colour and texture seen in Mexico, to the polished, austere Roman Catholic tradition.

This contrast formed the basis of the collection, combined with subtle 90s street and clubwear influences. Collaging the trashy and garish with a restricted silhouette to create garments that are both refined and sexualized.

Submission versus provocation.
