The Female

FALL 2017

How does design make sense of so much stuff?
Using an archive of female models from the 1950s to current day, The Female, examines trends of the human body and if such idea exists.

Model boards backstage have always caught my attention because while all of the photos depict faces of different structures and unique features, they all hold one quality that is favored by many designers.

This sparked the inspiration for my project.
Certainly humans have not physically evolved in the past century, yet why have the ideals of the female body constantly changed?
