My project is all about going against what the established commercial part of the fashion industry does with a special focus on mass production. I have used the Japanese aesthetic phenomenon wabi-sabi as inspiration. It appreciated the beauty of the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. By using natural materials that easily get weathered, as a result of use, I have followed the wabi-sabi way of materials. I have applied handicrafts techniques and I have used a lot of time on the garments, unlike what the commercial part of the fashion industry does. The silhouette and inspiration for the different garments are from workwear.
