I NEED TO BE PROTECTED
The collection represents an image of the future world where we have lost the North Pole. My aim is to create garments that protect our bodies and minds from environmental catastrophes and losing a faraway, sublime place. Losing the North Pole will have a tragic effect on the whole of human kind - all of us will be influenced. I use slogans like 'I need to be protected' and 'Mind your step' to express how the North Pole has an impact on our psychological mind. I work with protective materials, which I am trying to turn into more human shaped forms and garments. Through this collection I am hoping that people will reconsider the value of the North Pole and create a deeper care for it.
