The image captures an outfit from Henrica Langh’s collection Agliophobia. This outfit consists of two layers. The first layer comprises corsets inspired by both the physical side and the psychological side of the human body. While visually representing the bones and muscles underneath our skin, metaphorically the corsets symbolize our most intimate thoughts and feelings. The second layer symbolizes the armor that covers our fragile bodies. It is a metaphor of all the things we use to hide and protect ourselves with. Garments can protect, distract, show true feelings, or lie and it requires a great personal strength to uncover your fragile self.

Without your description I would have never known that this shot is about the clothing. It’s an interesting piece of clothing, but this looks like an image I would see in tattoo magazine. The focus seems to be on her face tattoo, she just happens to be wearing an interesting jacket. It’s a good photo, I just wanted to give you some constructive feedback.

Thank you Logan, much appreciate your feedback. It's a very good point you've made. I believe the different crop could help to shift focus on clothing.
