Dress(v.) is the first clothing project in my doctoral studies. It started from the need of understanding how is it that we relate with the things we wear. So I decided to start from the action of getting dressed, of putting on clothes, in my everyday mornings.
These movements informed me forms to create patterns for a series of clothes, out of which I highlight the white shirts. More can be seen from the images. More can be felt by trying on the pieces : )
The results of this project have been disseminated through the exhibitions and publications below:
