Distressed Perception // 2015

artisan collection 2015. Based on a Ted talk about mental illness in the creative industry, this collection uses minimalistic oversized, boxy silhouettes combined with fitted garments, wrapping and tying. Also using heavy weight denim attached to light weight knits distort the silhouettes. This was to convey the feelings of being constricted but also being overwhelmed. All edges are left raw and distressed to convey the unraveling of the mind. Final outcome for semester 1, year 3 at Otago Polytechnic Fashion School.
