The Winter 2008 issue of Hong Kong magazine Privé Asia features an unusual editorial that tackles the issue of Western evangelists coming over to Asian countries and trying to preach and convert the people.

The result is a rather intriguing editorial entitled "The Evangelist" that showcases couture fashion pieces with a religious twist added to the theme.

The black-and-white editorial features model Elyse Sewell captured by photographer Baldovino Barani with styling by Holly Suan Gray.

Implications - Religious imagery has always been considered a touchy subject, however due to this recent wave of liberalization it no longer is. This pattern is telling of the open and free society that has recently opened up to a whole host of ideals. Businesses can benefit by using this new freedom in other topics previously unexplored.
