I wanted this last poster to look like a quilt, so I used 16 different patterned backgrounds. All are from items I had at home, skirts, scarves, scrapbooking paper, fabric samples, and even a binder I once used while in design school. In contrast to the stark white uniform background of the Fashion Victims poster, these colorful backgrounds symbolize the uniqueness and individuality of each of the dolls I used, and using so many of my treasured possessions as backdrops makes it very personal.
This poster is dedicated to all the girls and women in the world. I hope that everyone will see that I am not trying to condemn exercise or healthy eating, but to encourage them to seek a positive alternative to the pernicious notion of the female body as a never-ending improvement project and to replace self-doubt and self-sabotage with self-acceptance and self-respect.
When I was working on this poster, this song inevitably came to mind since I'm a 90's girl. Pardon their language, but it's just so fitting.
