To Embellish - Fashion Design Studio 6
This collection Caged Chaos is from my second semester 3rd-year body of work. It is a collection of experimental garments about breaking free from a patriarchal societies expectations of a “feminine” body and embracing the chaotic nature that is life. It's about a journey to break out of our cage, the fight for equality and the freedom within chaos. The collection uses contrasting elements of structure and chaos, stretch scuba fabrications with silks and satin's. The collection used historical undergarments and silhouettes in an Anachronistic manner to tell the progressive story of being and feeling trapped under a stereotype and others’ expectations. Progressively, the silhouettes become less rigid and confining and progress to a freer state in the ever continuous fight for equality in a Mans World
