Entry Description

This collection immerses you in the journey of a woman navigating a love lost. Regret and unexpressed feelings haunt her as she writes letters brimming with undying love. Devastated by his passing, she seeks solace through transformative acts of self-expression. Thrifted garments are torn, re-stitched and repurposed, reflecting her emotional turmoil. The fabric becomes a canvas for her cathartic release, blurring the boundaries between art, fashion and personal expression. These creations bear the marks of her emotional labor, merging love, loss and resilience into a profound visual narrative.
