An aw '11 collection from Samuel Johnson inspired by photographer Diane Arbus' work

“Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They've already passed their test in life. They're aristocrats," Diane Arbus said, who is famous for photographing the deviant side of society. Inspired by Arbus' work, emerging fashion designer Samuel Johnson created his aw '11 collection. Using varying hues of orange, frocks with pleats and embelished collars, Johnson has captured the feeling of Arbus' work and turned it into fashion.
