"Amendment" was developed by Marissa Petteruti through research and analysis of ordinary clothes to re-evaluate fashion’s role amidst the chaos of our current times. In this age of uncertainty, anxiety, and political disruption, it questions fashion’s importance in our everyday lives and society. Integrating practice and research methods – the combination of texts, interviews, photographic experiments, and material exploration inform a multi-disciplinary approach to design. Pushing the boundaries of fashion and its means, Marissa's designs emphasize the non-binary nature of ordinary clothes as suitable for both men and women. Marissa currently lives in New York City and is graduating with a degree in fashion design from Parsons School of Design.
