I'm entranced with the avant-garde silhouettes Mariya Sabotinova has photographed for her set 'Wanda Seldon.' With images that range from heart-shaped hips and wasp waists to scalloped shoulders and a fierce hourglass, it's tough to select a favorite.

Mariya Sabotinova is based in Burgas, Bulgaria. See the full 'Wanda Seldon' shoot above, and be sure to read similar features on avant-garde fashion below.

Implications - Excessive, body-shaping accents that take simple outfits and transform them into something unique are a huge consumer trend in fashion. In an image and body obsessed culture, couture that incorporates various body shapes and caters designs to minimize body flaws and accent strengths are popular for women looking to hide their insecurities.
