Grotesque Imagery in Fashion Advertising

The study investigates the grotesque genre of representation in luxury fashion advertising. In doing so, both the art and marketing literature is synthesized in order to identify distinct types of grotesque. In particular, Marc Jacobs advertising was examined. As such, the study further expands the theoretical parameters of the grotesque.
