This project is inspired by Textile factory workers and addresses the issues of exploitation of cheap workforce in third world countries.
It is made to fit women’s sizes, however its aesthetic is gender-neutral.
It plays on the juxtaposition of functionality and restriction. It features workwear uniforms that would ultimately improve and contribute to the sewer’s activities mixed with very restrictive machine like add-ons. In doing so, it aims to question where does one’s body start becoming a machine, both from a physical as well as ethical aspect.
Although the collection is strongly conceptually driven, it is considerably designed to appeal to young contemporary costumers with a flair for street style with an eccentric touch.
The multyfunctionality of garments enables for endless adaptations from basics to over-the-top show pieces and tackles the issue of over-consumption and fast production (issues that lead to textile worker exploitation) by offering two-in-one pieces.
