"We may make clothings take the mould of arm or breast; however, clothings mould our hearts, our brains, or tongues.” (Virginia Woolf) My final collection is about the relationship between men and clothing. I was thinking about the issue of fast fashion – everybody throws their clothes away and they don’t cherish their garments anymore, not like before when you had your garments for a long time and then gradually the garment became a symbol of you. As time goes by, clothes become carriers – of traces, memories emotions and they become a reflection of the man wearing them – this is what I wanted to talk about in my final project.
In terms of the design I transformed the pattern into the human body as my initial idea and I have spent the past year and a half developing this. I used natural fabric in my collection because it has the closest relationship with people – all of the garments are made from 100% organic cotton with linen and wool. I spent a lot of time developing and hand-finishing the garments, because I think that when you do something by hand, you will at the same time inject your emotion into the garment and you will feel the warmness in it.
