My thesis collection demonstrates the ways in which we can use second-hand garments and deadstock / vintage fabric in order to create something new.
With the idea that textiles define the various stages of our lives, the technique of upcycling and creating a more sophisticated ode to DIY culture creates these randomized and gestural shapes throughout the collection. Overall. the concept is about the little impacts we make on each other’s lives and how through fate, memory, and human connection we are meant to be experiencing a collective interpretation of life.
