The Vice Style 'Romanian Prison Vogues' shoot explores the fashion and lives of prisoners at the country's only detention center for women, Târgșor. The eye-opening photographs document what life for these women is like in a country where prisoners are allowed to wear their own clothes.

From a 22-year-old serving 16 months for theft to a 36-year-old woman with a 20-year sentence for murder, the photos capture the differences between each prisoner, and how they view their lives on the inside. Journalist Ioana Moldoveanu explains how the women dress not exactly how they want, but in ways that will allow them to fit in and not call attention to themselves. For the photoshoot, however, they were encouraged to wear their favorite outfits, with help from stylist Dana Anghel.

If you're looking for an incredibly original and insightful article and photoset, the Vice Style 'Romanian Prison Vogues' shoot is the perfect place to start.
