MA GRADUATION COLLECTION
The collection is created around natural stains in clothing, by taking the stain out of its conventionally seen context. The stained clothing functions as the material in the collection. The purpose was to search how our reaction to something stigmatic could change if we take them out of their customary scene, by highlighting and playing with the natural stain.
The outcome was to find a way to make stains more acceptable and continue the lifecycle of the dirt-marked garment.
The collection was reconstructed and created from stained clothes, such as sweat-stained white t-shirts, discoloured white underwear, and period-stained black underpants. By using sweat-stained parts and highlighting the discoloured clothes I draped my way towards a collection that celebrates the everyday stain. The aim was to create something beautiful out of something seen as ugly and stigmatic.
