"Using inspiration from multiple artists and artworks I created a controversial and cynical depiction of love through collaborative fashion and wearable art. My main artist of inspiration was a 15-year-old art student, Demi Barnes, whose artwork became famous online and was shared by thousands for its irony and uniqueness. Barnes created a modern style wedding dress, made out of divorce papers she had sourced online. She intended for the artwork to emphasize how important the sacred institution of marriage is and highlight this in the face of ever-climbing divorce rates. This piece served as the inspiration for my concept."
