Microscopic Fashion by Anastasia Korosteleva

I ‘dressed’ the model in high fashion garments, which were magnified by one hundred with a scanning electron microscope. Likewise, I ‘applied’ various cosmetics, which had this time been magnified a hundred to two thousand times. The photographs present a new way of looking at fashion photography, and also explore how we wear fashion. They reduce fashion to its physical core – natural and synthetic products that combine to create the garments and cosmetics that we recognise and desire. The images also show how we can be dressed in less than one millimetre of fabric and one millilitre of makeup – ultra economical, sustainable fashion.
