The Beautiful Ugly.. Paulinah N. Eboh Sampson’ second collection for her line ‘Dolls of Decadence’ inspired primarily by voodoo dolls and the voodoo culture with subliminal messages of S&M and slavery. Unfinished raw edges, graffitti blemished garments with heavily studded and spiked adorments combine to create a captivating and memorable collection. The collection – a collaboration between Dolls of Decadence, Dark art Airbrushing and Jesika Parmar ‘Funky Jewells’, centres on deconstructed and juxtapositoned pieces in fabrications of signature luxury jeresy, silk and lace. All within a palette of petrol blue, warm cream, deep red wine and midnight black. For further information about the inspirations behind the collection, check out Paulinah’s Blog. Photograpy by Paul Smith (MistaSmiff photography), Gregory Mason, Peter Hirst and Elspeth Van der-Hole. Make up by Alexandra Dyson, Sumi, Sadia Hussain | Models: Eliza Jade Warman, Nehanda Ferguson, Roanna Dunsford, Weonalyn Cutchin, Sophie S and Dane-Marie Miller
