Investigating the dressed body in society
My interest in fashion lies in its ability to shape and even build societies. Every society throughout history has built its affinity around clothing. As individuals, we take part of our surroundings by shaping our bodies accordingly, making our clothing not an expression of our individual selves but of the context we belong to.
I have worked with combining skin and body, i.e. the embodied self, with black as the commonness of society. This resulted in an archetypical outfit: a shirt and a jacket with black latex that slowly creeps down the outfit, revealing the skin underneath.
