Attachment, an affective bond that is established with something or someone, a permanent and exaggerated dedication, is the theme chosen for this collection. We are all attached to something, be it a person, a moment, a place, a memory and this collection portrays this feeling.
To portray this theme, personal childhood photographs were collected, where the attachment that one has as a child for the parents and vice versa is visible. The chosen images convey this feeling through touching, holding someone, hugging, grabbing.
Different ways of passing the theme to fabrics were explored. From basting and topstitching, techniques used to join garments, prints of wrinkled fabrics under smooth fabrics, in other words a trompe l’oil idea, fabrics wrinkled and secured with foil so that the appearance is maintained. The pieces themselves are designed to embrace the wearer.
