How to portray a personal wardrobe? What shapes a personal wardrobe? On the one hand it is a, usually geometric, object that enables individuals the ability to 'afford' ( Gibson, 1977) themselves of a diverse range of contents. But, we can also think of it as an organic collection that tracks the evolution of individual tastes and values. Sources of the visual research presented here include the collection of words though dictation and text messaging, image collection, as well as journals and maps used as methods to depict the wardrobe's existence. Perhaps, a wardrobe is in fact shapeless and, instead, it is the concept of a constellation that is most apt to describe the myriad possibilities of meaning that inhabit this secluded area: what is being taken care of and what is being locked up, neglected or in limbo ( in contrast to what is being revealed) in the practice of everyday life (De Certeau, 2002)? I propose the hypothesis that a wardrobe could be an absolute 'state'; a geometric shape; a principium of things entangled with organic shape; a humanness in the unclothed dark wriggling to be found, searched and recorded.
The Storytelling Wardrobe … a mnemonic that connects into the past. I came to MA Fashion at Goldsmiths, University of London with 10kg of fabric waste and yarn ends left behind from current wardrobes. I had them rejuvenated into raw materials. They are yarn balls and lengths of cloth made by mixture of fabric waste and yarn ends. I call it - The Storytelling Wardrobe for introducing storytelling as an agent to propose fabric waste and yarn ends as a medium of illustration while weaving loom and tools as alternate options of paint brush or crayon to tell the revival of the past in the current wardrobe to be reincarnated to the future wardrobe.
Blossom ... a reflection of raw and random wardrobe of the African farmers under Jackie Nickerson’s lens. The abundance of their wardrobes flourished by reusing expired wardrobe from the developed countries.

The storytelling wardrobe explores Roland Barthes theory of textiles as a vital signifier of meaning within fashion, to combine weaving practice with historical analysis of an item within my own wardrobe – a sarong. The focus of this project has been on embodiment through both the making of cloth and the wearing of lengths of fabric (or sarongs.) During this project I developed a method of weaving from my own yarn balls that are made by spinning cloth and yarn ends together. The project proposes the passing-on of traditional dressing rituals and of slowly crafted textiles where each piece of fabric is intertwined with time and memory. http://golddesignfest.co.uk/fuen-chin/ http://www.londondesignfestival.com/events/goldsmiths-design-fest
