My work is a collection of clothing designed around ideas of identity as performance. The collection is made from reclaimed materials. The practical process of collection in sourcing materials is as important as the creation of clothing itself. Transformation of domestic textiles from 1960’s -80’s through hand craftsmanship is central to my methodology. My interest in these materials and techniques is related to my exploration of performative gender identity, especially women’s roles.
Utilizing the concept of the performance Happening from Fluxus and a desire to present fashion on the street my collection will be displayed in the London Overground. The collection will be presented during the Goldsmiths Design Festival which coincides with London Fashion Week providing the opportunity to subvert the standard model for a fashion collection.
