This project is based on the search of an experimental work method.

I used the idea of collages as the main theme of the project.

Based on that idea, I worked with combining pieces knitted in different materials, textures and colors. My focus was on the interactions between the shape of the pieces and the shape of the body, and the interaction between de different textures and nuances of colors.

The project takes its inspiration from African and Mongolian folklore. The main focus of the project is an examination and adaptation of different historical textile techniques that are reworked into modern and artistic expressions. With this approach this project is more abstract and conceptual compared to more traditional tailored and fashion oriented clothing projects.

Through the inspiration from African and Mongolian cultures this project has also worked to examine the inherent prerequisites that the clothing of these traditional cultures possessed – in particularly the need for reflecting status and clout while also serving practical functions such as being adapted to climatic conditions and serving as protection against enemies.
