For my final major project I chose to look at the idea of Cosmetic Surgery and the reasons behind why people feel the need to modify themselves. This led me into researching subjects such as Body Dysmorphic Disorder which is what my final images are inspired by.

My images challenge the idea of what the brain see’s when we look in the mirror rather than what we see. When looking in the mirror, the reflection looking back at us is almost an hallucination and a phantom of what our brain wants us to see which is an exaggeration of our flaws, generating this fixation towards what we do not like about ourselves.

For this project, I had looked into Mens mental health and the reasons behind why Men in this generation hide their emotions and feminine. I created a series of images that show the contrast between ‘Manly’ and ‘Feminine’ and challenged the idea of a mixture between both.

Trend- Busy doing nothing


For my trend project, we had to choose 3 different trends going on in the world and finally pick one of these and create a trend book. The trend I chose was about the Meal subscription box industry. It became to clear to me that consumers are starting to become lazier and are too busy in their everyday life when it comes to meal time. The meal subscription industry is booming and companies such as; Gousto, Hello Fresh and Graze are providing consumers with quick and easy meal prep boxes at the click of a button. My series of images capture the idea between lazy and busy, which is the reason behind why consumers have started to use these services. The use of bright bold colours within my styling connote the busy and the use of ‘lazy’ poses and messy styling shows the laziness.
