Designing a collection for a chosen designer: Toni Maticevski.
Concept is based on a statement of the designer: "Who doesn’t want to see a woman feeling like she has her armour protecting and supporting her, and part of that is what I create". That statement combined with an article I read about school pictures of children being photoshopped I came to an concept to create an armour with the insecurities of a skin condition.
With the research I started with my own skin condition: eczema. But after a while I read about the skin condition Vitiligo and I found the shapes intriguing.
I also used a wetsuit as form inspiration for this collection
With the fabric choses I play with the different textures of skin: smooth and rough.
