London Fashion Week: Antipodium showcases the ‘pre-surgical print’

Australian designer brand Antipodium has impressed critics with dresses featuring plastic surgery markings at London Fashion Week recently. The womenswear label collaborated with the president of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons to create the outfits, which are printed with the kind of markings surgeons use to show where they need to make incisions before an operation.Designer Dion Lee created the collection by using a series of thermal-image-camera photographs he took of a model. The plastic surgery markings, which create the shape of a body, were then printed on to the white dresses, the Age reports. “This collection was about the parallels between geography and the body,'' he stated. Critics and those working in the fashion industry - including Vogue, Telegraph Fashion and Fashionologie - have already sang the praises of the collection. Fashion bible Elle UK stated: “Prepare yourselves: the Aussies are coming. In fact, they're already here.''
