This collection explores the connection between fashion and technology. Borrowing shape and form from architecture along with integrated electronics.
Drawing inspiration from looking at how technology and fashion have become one, and how fashion has taken different routes due to the technology now available. The collection concentrated on how every social space is designed to suit a user's needs. I wanted my garments to adorn the body, while also reacting to the wearer's needs and requirements, for example altering in shape and form to cool the wearer down through moving flaps. Also the use of neon lighting tubes sewn into seams to emphasise and aluminate certain aspects of the garments.
