More than #OITNB, Wonderfully Weird Shares “Prison Fashion”

As a Wonderfully Weird connoisseur I have made it my mission to seek out odd fashion pieces. Those quirky items true fashionistas cannot get enough of, and crave on a consistent basis. Therefore, this week I would like to focus on a style most would not dare consider, and that’s prison fashion. When most envision prison, jail or the big house stripes instantly come to mind. There is an allure to black +Member Loginwhite stripes and the following items are meant to do just that.

According to the website,“Prisoners studying makeup application or hairdressing at the jail joined in to style the models, who wore white avant-garde streaks on their cheeks. Once dressed, the models paraded down a red carpet lined by prison fencing topped by rolls of barbed wire.”
