Elements of a fashion design collection including: fabric, swatches, fashion illustrations and sketches

Collection 1

The collection is centered around the theme of confinement, incarceration, and being a prisoner, both physically and mentally. The designer draws inspiration from the Law of Dependent Origination, exploring concepts such as innocence, consciousness, the four elements, craving, and rebirth, which are reflected in the pieces' silhouettes and details. The collection features body-con pieces that represent different stages of feeling, craving, and desires, all made from sustainable fabrics such as tricot made from recycled plastic bottles, bamboo jersey, tencel, cupro, and Ahimsa silk.

The collection includes menswear-inspired pieces, including a vest with tails mimicking the leaves on a sacred fig tree, a woven chainmail fabric cutout piece, and high-waisted wide-leg trousers. Other standout pieces include a long sheer silk jersey t-shirt with gathered seams on the outside of the arms, a tube dress with a sheer chiffon overlay, and an asymmetrical dress with a bodice cutout.

The collection also features outerwear, including a cocoon cape in boiled wool with patch pockets, a soft hand twill coat in a brick red that drapes over the wearer, and a mini skirt with an exposed zipper and step hem. The designer's attention to detail is evident in the 16th-century inspired squared neckline of the top and the 3D printed skeleton hand molds sewn onto the dress.
