In my past life I was a 7th avenue fashion designer. Yes, I know, a business that has no social redeeming qualities. Well I made affordable clothing for the masses (most of the time) But now I work in beauty as a skincare specialist (even though I do believe that superficial or outer beauty does help bring out inner beauty) But I digress. I am not superficial, I just enjoy fashion/makeup and all that stuff- but it doesn’t rule my life.
I spend my leisure time going through fashion magazines looking at all that is happening. I grew up in the fashion business and I still have a passion for it. What has been bothering me is the advertisements that show very young models selling anti-aging creams or models that are on record stating that they use Botox, as the model for an anti-aging cream. But I also think that many of the copy in the ads are just meaningless words. I actually look at the photo first and then read the copy. So I decided to read the copy and edit the copy to have another meaning. This is not about bashing the business, it is just to see it with another message. I guess it goes with my view that sometimes if you cannot change something, change the way you look at it.
