Preternatural Couture

Fashion moves beyond adornment and into post-natural body modification

Implications - Fashion and cosmetics has shifted from self-enhancement to self-acceptance in recent years, the natural next step of which is exaggeration or modification of the body's natural features. An industry that was once about adornment will shift focus to a projection of natural evolution by way of preternatural aesthetics that are strange yet elegant. This speaks to a shift in the perception of beauty, and oddity as a status symbol.
