Fashion Victims may look like an entertaining art installation, but its shocking imagery reflects a significant social issue in the world. It is a response to last month's horrific accident in Bangladesh where more than 1,000 textile workers, including women and children, were killed when their workshops collapsed.

Placing real women under rubble and fashion accessories, the Fashion Victims installation is the Spanish artist's “appeal for responsible production and consumption, both for people and the planet.” Created by Yolanda Dominguez, Fashion Victims is part of her Livings series, which gained traction through her previous Poses project.

Hard-hitting and thought-provoking, the Fashion Victims installation forces people to reflect on their own habits. Dominguez says, "The fashion world cannot dodge the facts and look the other way. We are all responsible for this reality. Stats for Stylish Crash Site Installations Trending: Older & Popular
