Inspired by biblical imagery and centered on religion, Yi-Jun Ian created this 20-piece wearable art collection for a Fash Mob event at The Butter Factory in Singapore. The collection heavily incorporates imagery from Gaga’s Born This Way album. With pieces including a red-veiled crown of insect-legged thorns and eyewear with blood-stained nails embedded in bleeding corks, Ian sought to establish the context of spiritual war that occurs amidst our everyday lives, whether out in the open or hiding in plain sight; to champion the idea of fighting for personal faith over blindly accepting religious dogma.
