“Scalpel, Please” acts as a social critique of the body in the 21st century. This printed textile collection was created in response to cosmetic surgery and its relationship to the grotesque body. These prints were then used to create a series of garments that utilise the medium of affective fashion, transforming the silhouette of the body when worn, temporarily making it “other”. This otherness echoes the idea that the grotesque body is a body that is in a state of hybridity, and transformation.
