Garment Language - A Material Story
2017
An exploration of function within fabrics, inspired by details often seen in work wear and duplicating them to create a sense of over-functioning.

‘Garment Language” is an exploration of our over-sharing culture. Online, we already share our lifestyles, stories, and opinions for everyone to see. This collection of garment components is an investigation into how clothing can be used as a communication tool, for the wearer to express thoughts visually — becoming a tactile social media.

Each component directly correlates to a word, allowing the wearer to spell out a sentence when combined. With an emphasis on versatility, each component can be used in ever-new ways, expressing and composing thoughts.
