The designs within these images are a reflection of a period in time when female figures were restricted within daily activates. However, through these images I wish to portray a breaking free of the boundaries laid out by the cultural norms.
Through these images I attempted to capture the personalities of power these women represent. These images represent modern women, in a gothic era. Each figure represents a dominant female within in a gothic revival period. The clothing within these shots attempts to portray each personality.
Through these images I attempted to use the designs to portray a memory of an era long since past. The Victorian era is a time that has always been of interest to me. The Victorian time is one that had such majesty about it. This era was about beauty and power. The Victorian period was a time of prosperity for the British Empire. I attempted to portray this prosperity and power using the models as a representation of the control the British were experiencing at this time.
