This work aims to explore nostalgia as a storytelling design method within fashion. By interpreting, translating, re-capturing and upcycling unmaterial human interactions from photographic, written and auditorial mediums, combined with traditional upcycling of materials, this work wants to evoke feelings of identification and/or empathy in dress, in order to highlight the importance of unmaterial
and material memory as social and environmental values. Made in a quiet collaboration with the anonymous medium creators. Stitch by stitch, the designer built up these mysterious lovers, friends, relatives and enemies, and literally held their hands in between the sewing machine and iron.
