The Anomalies is inspired by the ground breaking ideas of string theory; a scientific exploration that states that everything in the work is made up of miniscule, vibrating 11– dimensional strings. It is a beautiful equation that solves many anomalies in physics, and could explain how the universe came to be. One of the most exciting revelations if proven to be correct, is our universe is not alone but one of an infinite amount. I translated these ideas into fashion using techniques inspired by 1970's string art. By weaving string through drilled holes in flexible PVC, I discovered I could create a three- dimensional structure. The main designs of my collection are made from this process using between 70 - 250 metres of sting per garment.
