REUNION UNIVERSE

Reunion Universe is a seasonless women’s wear collection line creating thoughtful, artful, one-of-a-kind garments, which fall on the cusp of contemporary ready-to-wear and art-to-wear. The proposed collection is motivated by our wasteful and desensitized tendencies as consumers, and aims to comment on the disposability of fashion in our current society while exploring people’s attachment or lack thereof to clothing in relation to identity. The garments will be constructed exclusively from found materials, scraps and recycled fabric. The collection will be received most successfully when presented in a suitable context, that being an intimate setting and/or creative space to cultivate connection and unity. With this conceptual project, I hope to spark engagement and interactivity, and ultimately work towards a reset of the current state of the fashion industry in terms of fast production cycles, reliance on fashion trends, and thoughtless clothing consumption, alongside the development of a stronger foundation and more meaningful connection between fashion and art. This is a social development project.
