Disability Chic Part II

Jourdan Dunn in Nowness

Jourdan Dunn, More More More in Nowness

Okay, I’m not sure how I feel about this … is it a trend?

For the second week running (first viewing at the Gaultier exhibition), I’m seeing fashion juxtaposed with disability – this time it’s Jourdan Dunn, More More More featured in Nowness from a photo-shoot for Garage magazine, accessorised with walking stick and, is that, a pasted on prosthetic leg?

They say:

Jourdan Dunn fills up on fast food and Jeremy Scott’s dayglo trash aesthetic for Garage magazine, before embarking on her fashion month pilgrimage. The F/W 2014 edition of the fashion-and-art bible flirts with the hedonistic sides of consumerism, as seen in this season’s Chanel’s supermarket sweep and embodied here in part two of our issue-seven preview. Styled by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen and photographed by Benjamin Lennox, the chameleonic Dunn takes on six different vice-happy guises. “We looked at how objects that we see and use in our everyday life suddenly have been appearing in fashion collections, accessories and artworks,” says Sølvsten Thomsen of the hyperreal shoot.

Umm, I’m not sure about this … objects seen and used in real life … couldn’t they have booked models with genuine impairments if that was the message to they wanted to convey?

Nothing more everyday than a genuine disability … in real life, as seen on many beautiful women … tho’ not Jordan Dunn obviously.
