    Lauren Turton is an artist that creates amazing self portraits.  Her unique style has garnished her showcases in various art exhibitions in San Diego, California.

     

     

     The cherubic giggles created by the “Rabbit Head” in Lauren’s photography is not what attracted Couture Prototype to this artist, but rather the mystery within the photographs exhibited on Lauren’s website LaurenTurtonPhotography.com.

    Lauren Turton’s Self Portrait

    Three years prior to the popularity of the images portrayed on the “American Horror Story” TV Show, Lauren had the foresight to create her own brand of imagery, which resembles certain visuals on the TV show.  Did Lauren’s style of photography inspire the staff of the popular TV show?  Whether the director of photography, for the FX TV show, caught wind of Lauren’s self portraits or not, remains to be known.

    1173841_605825536135539_1266178601_nCouture Prototype decided to collaborate with this hare Lauren Turton, not only because of her unique look, but her ability to transcend her surreal vision to her photography.

    “The melding of a Bunny mask, a DSLR Camera, and a graphic design computer program, is an unorthodox twist to the mundane ‘Selfies’ flooding the social media websites.  Finally (there is) an artist taking the cliche style Selfie photography to a “surreal artistic” form.  Lauren’s art is refreshing to witness, I am honored to have collaborated with her,” commented Mike Madriaga, the director of Couture Prototype.

    With Lauren’s education she has obtained knowledge in not only digital photography, but film photography as well; including 35mm, 120mm, 4×5 Large Format Film and different film processes including non- silver, cyanotype, Van dyke brown, gum printing, and much more.

    “In real life, of course, it is the hare that wins. Every time. Look around you.” Anita Brookner

    Garbage Pail Kids

    Overlooking Chenoan

    Our custom Garbage Pail Kids shoes overlooking Chenoan, South Korea

    Korea has been front and center of the media blitz here in the United States. Couture Prototype, a unique vintage fashion based company, was recently blessed to visit South and North Korea first hand, via an exchange student program.

    The war between the North and the South did not stop Carissa Toro from booking a flight: in fact, the scare tactics of the western media intensified her desire to visit Korea.

    In 2013, Toro, a San Diego college student and fashion model, provided us with firsthand accounts of Korea: “The temples are colorful, the food is amazingly different, and the city-life is similar to most metropolitan areas in the United States.”

    The conformity of the culture contradicts the infamous KPOP scene, which is a fusion of trendy fast paced Japanese and Western POP music.

    After learning about the Korean pop culture, the guys at Couture Prototype created a special pair of high heel pumps for Carissa to wear in Korea. The shoes were originally a pair of 1960′s Sam Boyds, and then enhanced (via decoupage and clear-coat) with a collage of original 1980′s Garbage Pail Kids stickers. The shoes were complimented with a vintage Anne Klein black dress, wrapped with a baby-blue Fendi belt. The overall look was simple, but the emphasis was on the Couture Prototype custom shoes.

    During dinner, Carissa noticed the interesting display of Ban-Chan, a side dish in Korean cuisine, as an artistic correlation to the Garbage Pail Kids shoes. The smorgasbord of side-dishes were mirrored by the shoes, not because of the various colors, but the concept of enhancing an already beautiful subject, with extra traditional ingredients. Referring to the seaweed, fermented cabbage, and homegrown vegetables that we Westeners may take for granted.
