These photos were initially inspired by the pink ladies. I’d hoped to put them on the back of a more stereotypically attractive jacket, maybe one that was tighter and shorter, but on parading around and explaining what I was doing, lots of people thought the less revealing jacket worked better. The fairly eye catching, overly decorated brooches stand out from the dark limp coat, drawing attention to something that wouldn’t usually have attention, particularly from a patriarchal eye?
