Clown Couture

Circus-inspired styles and themes make clown attire fashionable
Implications - Can clowning around be chic? Apparently so, if the slew of clown-themed fashions and editorials are any indication. Presenting a new aesthetic—something that is less refined and more eccentric, even grotesque—clownish apparel and photography allow designers to express the peculiar and quirky side of fashion. Fashionistas may not take the clown-inspired pieces and themes at face value, but there are certainly elements that can translate into everyday style.
