The Diabolist is a story about “a school girl’s transformation who begins to experiment with witchcraft and the occult” created by Chicago fashion photographer and filmmaker Billy Rood and stylist Favia. The story is particularly inspired by the famous book, The Crucible and "by the imagery of a young woman’s transformation into a darker and supernatural version of one’s self". Favia also wanted to show the transformation in the fashion: “For the clothes I wanted to show the evolution from rebellious schoolgirl into this evil witch who’s into human sacrifice. A lot of the fashion is inspired by rituals I would research with my assistant Chelsea. In the beginning of the story, the character is fully clothed. Then as she progresses into the ritual she becomes more body conscious and bare. That idea of the transformation also inspired the fashion from a ritual in The Crucible where they would be dancing naked in the woods.” It's such a powerful series of images - We love them!
