Car Babes is a concept fashion line I have been working through for about 2 years now.  I started experimenting with the prints I had designed by making a collection of 8 different tee shirt designs, which became popular on the streets and with stylists.

From this idea I have grown and designed a full 10 look collection with new print variations and styles.  It is complete with silk pants, leather pants, leather jackets, and lots of digital print.

These prints are brought upon by my interest in the portrayal of the woman’s body in contemporary media.  Particularily in photos using sexy models with cars.  I use these photos to create prints that can be confusing and disturbing.  My interest stems from the over use of the same pose and facial expression.  I have manipulated these bodies to create a new body. 

With your help, my 10 look collection with debut in February for New York Fashion week.

Your contributions will pay for the cost of fabric and the production of samples.  The line is completely designed and the patterns are almost finished.  The fabrics consist of my own digitally printed silk and leather; which can cause a headache for my wallet!  

With your contribution I can continue to grow as a high end designer and label.

CAR BABES SS12 was a small sampler of what my work is.

Here is the statement:

"Sex and female bodies, the men who love them, taking off the few clothes they are wearing only to reveal nothing but white or black.  My works reveal the wild stereotying of sexy women in the media.  Over stimulation, internet diarrhea, low quality images; a constant bombardment of barely dressed, beautiful women making the same 'sexy' face in the same 'sexy' pose.  One body looking exactly like another.

Bodies in my works are ripped apart, stripped of their clothes.  Nothing is revealed, faces hidden under another woman's plastered smile.  Empty body parts, juxtaposed, to create floating images of something alien.

False ideas plastered on images, clones of clones of clones.  Clones of smiles, legs, breasts, cleavage.  Leaving only remnants of a morphed body.''
