Body - Knit - Interact

Hannah's interest in the relationship between body and knitted fabric provides the focus for this highly personal project. An interest in craft as well as performance video art inspires this intriguing collection of knitted concepts that challenges the boundaries of wearable and conceptual knitwear, transforming material qualities through interactive performance.
A clean, clinical aesthetic and surgical inspired materiality has inspired fine, stretched and elongated tubular knitted forms. Chrome fastenings create connections and movement between pieces, as well as reflecting the material qualities of both surgical tools and knitting machinery.
Working on various collaborations allowed Hannah to gain further insight into fashion editorials and photoshoots, in order to communicate trend like ideas during interactive performance based shoots.

All styling and design work is owned by Hannah Simister.
