Autumn Winter 23
Inspired by family history and familial identity, this collection questions the preservation of identities of those who have passed. Artefacts are preserved in museums because of their historical and cultural significance providing us with insight into the time, social norms, attitudes and ideologies of the day. The knowledge they hold is irreplaceable. Through research of family photographs, two grandmothers form the pillars of this collection, two very different women whose histories and personalities are fused into clothes. Utilising fabrics of the 40s and 50s, alongside Dior’s ‘New Look’, this personal collection questions identities through time, applied to conscious fashion today.
