The Katarzyna Konieczka 'Very Twisted Kingdom' 2010 collection takes inspiration from the life and condition of Joseph Merrick -- more commonly known as the Elephant Man. With cues from orthodontic and medical prostheses, this collection -- and one design in particular -- is dark and haunting.

The photos above were shot by Marcin Szpak, with makeup atristry by Aleksandra Przyłuska on model Aleksandra Jastrzębska.

Corporations and brands can capitalize on this by featuring ads or campaigns that are related to a subject that dominated the social media palette for any period of time. This shows that the company has a sense of humor and is on the forefront of contemporary consciousness.
