P.G. LONDON COLLEGE OF FASHION - FINAL REALISATION
Spirituality - My Otherness.
This project first started with the possibility of working with fabric manipulation. Researching “Fibre Artists” and their motivations is what brought up my personal conception that spirituality is one of the many layers that makes us what we are as human beings. I was engaged with how they used forms, materials and specific techniques to interact in that abstract discussion.
The experimentation came from references that defined syncretism as being analogous to an empty "plastic bag" that gains in value the more it contains.
The materials and textures were influenced by the syncretism and mysticism vision, but also by science, e.g. virtual reality. One way in which this was employed was by trying to “hide” the textures, making them subtle and not immediately visible to the eye.
