Karin Viktoria Bjurstrom (try saying that three times fast) has brought 1920s animation into fashion with her series 'Cartoon Trompe L'Oeil.' This cartoon couture features black and white contrasting pieces.

In her cartoon couture, Bjurstrom succeeds in making it look like early animation came through the screen and onto these pieces. Cartoon couture would be a great look, if it wasn't just a tad reminiscent of Christopher Lloyd in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit.'

Implications - 'Cartoon Trompe L'oeil' aims to alter the expressive content of early black & white animations into high fashion, thereby creating a confluence of imagination and reality. It is 1920s influence, but the topics of choice were humor, sex, and fear -- aka the topics that are still en vogue in 2011. Success is near for Karin Viktoria Bjurstorm.
