Willem de Kooning Academie
The purpose of the project was to create a story that led to a collection of 7 looks.
inspired on the sea, I tried to show a transition from vulnerability to confidence. The character is afraid of facing the world, which results in loneliness. This will start changing once she accepts her imperfections.
Transparent fabrics were used to create this collection. It starts with skin colour which symbolises nakedness and vulnerability. As the collection evolves it becomes darker. This change happens when the character starts accepting herself: she is still transparent, but not exposed anymore.
Womenswear collection created with light semi-transparent fabrics that become thicker by overlaying.
