HIGHLIGHTED PROJECT: THE FOLD
Central Saint Martins Graduate Fashion Collection
The name and world of my collection is called THE FOLD. Inspired by the physics defying paintings of Magritte and Escher, this world lies in between the sky and the stars and is home to inter dimensional beings. This world has its own unique flora and fauna which has been explored to showcase its utopian nature. They have been brought to earth through mathematical spells and and are slowly transforming and converting the human population. The majority of the looks are silicone 3d printed suits with heavy embellishment at the skin tight level, with diaphanous ethereal outerwear that has taken the form of origami. They are digital, geometric beings and every inch of their attire is created meticulously. The processes of creation include: cutting folding fabric, bead embellishment, laser cutting and layering, 3d printing and casting, hand painting and dying, and virtual sculpting.
