SHOW NOTES

COMING SOON

Sarracenia purpurea

FSR S/S 22

THE STARTING POINT FOR THIS COLLECTION WAS VERY INSPIRED BY INDIGENOUS LIVING. THE WAYS IN WHICH PEOPLE USE CLOTHING AS A TOOL. IN THE COMFORT FILLED REALITY MOST OF US LIVE IN NOW, THE BIGGEST FUNCTION CLOTHING SERVES IS MESSAGING. THE BE ABLE TO CONVEY PERSONAL SENTIMENTS/DISPOSITIONS , THROUGH CUTS AND SILHOUETTES, WHETHER THAT BE THROUGH PRINT AND TEXT OR OUT RIGHT THROUGH COMPLETE LOOK. THE IDEA OF MAKING SOMETHING THAT IS ABLE TO PRESENT AN IDEA AND AT THE SAME TIME EXIST AS A PIECE OF CLOTHING THAT DISPLAYS RELEVANCE TO THE FASHION CONTEXT ASWELL.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST IDEAS THAT APPEARED THROUGHOUT THE SHOW IN A VARIETY OF WAYS IS THE IDEAS OF CONSTRAINT. WHETHER THAT BE MENTAL, PHYSICAL OR IDEOLOGICAL CONSTRAINT WE EXIST IN A WORLD THAT CONSTANTLY ATTEMPTS TO PUT CONFINEMENTS ON US. THROUGH THE USE OF PRINTS, SHAPES, AND CUTS WE TRIED EMBODY THIS IDEA OF CONSTRAINT AND THOSE THAT BATTLE WITH IT AND THOSE THAT FREE THEMSELVES FROM THIS EXISTENCE.

THIS IDEA OF CONSTRAINT REPRESENTED PHYSICALLY ILUDED TO ME THE IDEA OF MENTAL CONSTRAINT AND THE CONFINEMENT OF IDEAS AND HOW IDEOLOGICALLY WE ARE ALWAYS BEING HERDED. CONFINED TO DEFINITION AND ASCRIBED MEANING WHEN FREEDOM TRUELY COMES FROM LIBERATING YOUR MIND OF ASCRIBED NOTIONS OF LIFE.

ON THAT NOTE

THE CLOTHING BEGAN AS A REPRESENTATIONS OF IDEAS THAT I SAW WITH IN MYSELF THAT I LOVED OR HATED OR FEARED OR THAT I FELT HAVE PERTINENCE TO EXISTENCES THAT I SEE. I TRIED TO REFLECT ON WHAT THESE SHAPES FELT LIKE TO ME
