This collection explores the connections we form with our garments throughout our lives. These connections are made over time by creating memories while wearing them and by living in them to the point that stains, scuffs and holes form on these most beloved garments. These marks remind the wearer of  “that time they finally landed that trick on their skateboard and scraped their knee” or show how the repetition of their daily movements have accumulated to form a crease in their jeans. 

 

I am representing this evolution of our most loved garments as well as the phases we experience throughout our lives visually with the use of textiles.


My garments consist of denim mixed with various handmade textiles including techniques such as weaving, screen printing and felting.
