Smells Like Teen Spirit

My constellation session this term is all about analysing clothing and the cultural meanings behind them using a columns method.



In the first session we analysed an outfit worn by Madonna, deducing at the implications of what she was wearing by looking at the fabrics, colours, historical contexts and modifications of these.

We concluded that it was a statement about gender, the juxtaposition of the suit to the modified corset having the implication her femininity being strong enough to dominate over the masculine.
