Claire-our student from Beijing
Claire came to us from Beijing, China with a lot of artistic ideas which she took and develop into a life dairy and image confessions that were dark and emotionally restricted - coded. Here is her design which was very labor intensive and I really loved her thinking. Every pleat is made from 2 different fabrics, appliqué and embroidered with 2 separate images which can be seen depending on viewers angle. The deconstructed top wraps around and it is made with shapes reminiscent to guns with spikes on the edges. Emma is modeling this look, the makeup was designed to wash completely her features and show the face of a child who had everything but grew up behind dark curtains and had a restricted freedom.
