Existential Nomad

Existential Nomad

The collection ‘Existential Nomad’ is a reflection on modern society and personal experience of migration. The work reflects on contemporary phenomena such as globalization, migration, capitalism and the discovery of self.
The collection is based on the nesting dolls principle: all of the garments can be layered over each other and the outermost can encase the inner layers. Each layer is based on a traditional garment, passed on through the generations and remaining virtually unchanged such as chemise, caftan and cloak.
