My graduate project, Assemble, challenges the gender neutral fashion.
Based upon a conceptual approach I'm trying to create a space - inspired by UN’s Sustainability Goal 5 on Gender Equality, to explore the relation between masculinity and femininity.
I see the diversity as a driving force in our society which plays an essential part to create and maintain equilibrium.
I wish to reconsider unisex which is often something visually neutral, monochrome and oversize for a more distinct aesthetic that challenges gender stereotypes in an attempt to situate my work in the fluid boundaries between biological and socially constructed gender.
"I am interested in creating a stronger link between consumer and garment for at more sustainable fashion future.
In this sense, I am also inspired by Goal 12 on Responsible Production and Consumption. My main tool for working towards this goal is a celebration of craft.
My use of small scale producers and traditional craftmanship demonstrates a dedication to materiality, experiment, raw expression and irregularity for a hopefully longer product life."
