Cissel Dubbick, The Dark Realities of Everyday Life, 2019. This collection critiques the fashion world: an acceleration of a relentless and fast-paced beauty-factory, a formulae sold as a commodity, and the experience lived by facing the brutal truth – The Dark Realities of Everyday Life. All garments are white as the staring point. White is the representative of the innocence with whom we want to be identified. During the collection, the white veil is lifted and the brutal appearance of the naked body becomes visible as a symbol of the brutal truth. At the same time, the flame settles on the seemingly spotless white clothing. The collection is then branded. As a climax, a fashion terrorist abuses the luxurious lipstick and attacks himself in one of the garments. The lipstick leaves a bloody trace of consumption on the body and dress. Despite all signs and warnings, we seem to ignore the brutal truth. We remain blind, dependent and happy.
