My good friend and art partner in crime, Hips Like Boys just alerted me to a great series of photographs that ever so slightly reminded me of Joseph Szabo’s Teenage.

And there’s more where they come from because Camilla Morton has just added Diane Von Furstenberg And The Tale Of The Empress’s New Clothes to her repertoire of modern fashion fairytales.
