My objective with this project is to see haute couture from a different viewpoint. I have kept integrity and tradition of haute couture such as meticulous craftsmanship and tedious hand work. All pieces are hand sewn except original vintage jeans.
I have combined the above with two different elements. First being American rock culture such as the use of vintage jeans and bold graphic iconic t-shirts. The other being Japanese deconstruction. Techniques used are slashing, washing, distressing, raw edging, excessive ornamentation. The result is quite unique. The rebirth of avant-garde rock/couture.
No. 004 The Sacred Whore / Wisdom
Mary Magdalene is the most misunderstood figure in the bible. Catholics call her a woman of sin or accuse her of being a prostitute. However Gnostic literature tells a different story. She has been known as Christ's first disciple and his most beloved. She has also been called an Illuminati + Illuminatrix (Enlightened + The power to enlighten others). Some even believe her to be the wife of Jesus and bore him 3 children, who's bloodline may even continue until today. The third eye at back of this T-shirt is the all seeing eye of wisdom: the power of seeing the truth and the future.
