Is Krasimir Marchev's Avant-Garde Look for Mothers-to-Be?

This Krasimir Marchev shoot confuses me. It's called 'Birdtrap' and features over a dozen highly stylized illustrations that lead up to this unusual red-and-black dress with an opening at the belly and a cage design. Is this cage couture for pregnant women?

The shoulders of Krasimir Marchev's unusual dress extend out like scaffolding, further enshrouding the model's figure in red draped fabric. Fascinating:

Implications - The photos look like they are very old and have a somewhat creepy vibe. Krasimir Marchev photographs the model in the middle of the forest with no one else around. Birds are illustrated into the photographs, making the clothing seem like it attracts birds who are looking for a perch to land on.
