Graduate Photoshoot

Up-cycled wool patchwork suits, made piece by piece by myself out of reclaimed woollen garments that would've been discarded. I felted them to increase quality and density before patching them together. The theme of the stripe was important as it is a symbol of rebellion, diversity and continuous movement, which represents my position as a social and environmental activist, who wants to carve out a more sustainable future in fashion. I want to make garments to be cherished that could last a lifetime, without losing the vibrancy and interest of clothing that makes the wearer feel one-of-a-kind.
