I Make: Womenswear

My project was inspired by the 1991 installation by Annette Messager called ‘historie des robes’. From this I also looked into ‘Womanhouse’, the installation created by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro in the early 1970s in which they showcased the work of feminist artists and gave women a space to share their experiences through performance art. With my collection I wanted to explore what femininity is to me. Using a mixture of old and new fabrics, as well as knit and screen printing, I wanted to capture the female form from a different perspective, each look telling its own story.
