Fall 2018

Life is not a spectator sport, yet an individual lives under constant influence and surveillance of others. A key component of the battle between interior and exterior is dress. It contributes to one’s persona, allowing protection of the inner being.

There is an intense societal pressure to prove oneself to others, but expression should be in one’s own best interest. We do not need to appear as the perfect image of ourselves, and dress can be used to acknowledge and embrace this. One item with contrasting reversible facades putting full control in the wearer; one item highlighting an imperfection within a neat system.
