Major project:


  • In my opinion, a garment is a wearable object, which has two versions. One version of the garment is worn on the body; The other one is when the garment is in its own shape/state. I demonstrate my originality in the design process, as well as in mixing material applications of thermoplastic moulding, jersey, with woven fabric. I try to deliver the connection between a group of objects from my research to my collection. Judith Shea and Louise Bourgeois inspired me a lot throughout my research.
