S E Q U O R - Umbrella Movement

  • Abi Millen

This collection explores the Hong Kong protests whilst looking at Chinese Protest artist Ai Weiwei. By incorporating the traditional suit in new and experimental ways as well as using the umbrella silhouettes used in the protest as protective wear, I’ve been able to question attitudes in modern day society as well as building awareness of a global topic. I have created a contemporary collection, featuring traditional suiting elements alongside original sportswear taking inspiration from the umbrellas. Sponsored by Barbour thankfully I’ve been able to produce all sportswear elements of my collection using Barbour’s upcycled fabrics.
