Solicitors office + fashion designer = obsession with the man in the suit 

In the summer of 2018, i worked in a solicitor’s office – and ever since i have made the man the medium of my work. Obsessed by his daily rituals, his clothing and his characteristics. But I never questioned why? 

Why do I document him, photograph him? Why did I dedicate my graduate collection to him? 

So, I dedicated a project and academic writing to understanding my obsession. 

I wear the suit, I have adjusted the suit, therefore I am no longer the representation of the suit; this makes me a higher power then the man in the suit.
