Fashion editorials are often known for high end designer clothing, exotic settings and luxury, but this editorial from the Antidote Fall 2011 issue takes a different route. It is not often that one really sees a model portrayed as a homeless person, but this shoot rocks those boundaries by having Magdalena Frackowiak pull off a fierce hobo-chic look.
Entitled 'Lost in Translation,' the fashion shoot is more of a story shot by photographer Giampaolo Sgura. The story in the Antidote Fall 2011 edition follows Frackowiak as she lives the life of a fashionable homeless person. Photos show Magdalena rummaging through her scraps and belongings while wearing harsh, dark makeup that complements her wildly teased tresses.
Despite of being without a home, the model is dressed in designer clothes and carries them with her wherever she goes, signifying their importance to her. This editorial ultimately serves as a commentary of the modern woman and her obsession with fashion, illustrating how far many will go to own the next hot item, even during harsh economic times.
