THROW CAUTION TO THE WIND
Unwanted plastic bags become sustainable, recycled, re-used and refined into permanent pockets.
Sustainability has a huge influence in the garment designs. The 'dress for life' from the 'caution' collection has a life-size functional carrier bag pocket which is draped into the whole silhouette of the dress. The bag handle is positioned as the pocket opening. The design is to highlight the damaging effects the plastic carrier bags has on the environment and how the fashion industry has a responsibility on making improvements. The luxury unique clothes made by British design duo Cunnington & Sanderson are designed for longevity and to be cherished, The dress for life also promotes the importance of slow fashion.
SILENT FIELD SCULPTURES
Silent field sculpture’s surrounded by space filled with stillness.
Time continues, with movement only from the endless shifting silhouettes.
Multi layered loose fabrics, patterns and objects are blown together by the wind into unbalanced structures.
3 dimensional clothes become 2 dimensional.
Deconstructed shirts appear hollow, empty and soulless.
No structure remains,
only frailty and detailing of what once was.
Unwanted plastic bags become refined into permanent pockets.
There is only one purpose, to protect.
Warning flashes of vivid yellow mix with engulfing void of black.
Small, medium & large checks combine enhancing confusion and distortion.
Beware of bellowing volume that transfigures when worn.
Reinforced horizontal shoulder lines,
drape and form.
Expressionless faces hide emotions.
