Throughout my final year as a fashion design student at Chester university, I created my final collection: ‘living in fear – a masked generation’. The ideology behind my collection is to illustrate social and political issues that humanity is facing, including such themes as controversy of political power, children growing up quickly due to the strains of social media and the ever declining mental health of this generation, directly linking to the effects of COVID-19. This is expressed in my collection in the form of highly powerful print, statement pieces and textiles.
Each piece within my collection is designed to stimulate the viewers mind and encourage them to consider the deeper meanings behind each piece. I believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, therefore my uniquely expressive style of merging outrageous design statements with on trend fashion garments automatically creates a talking point.
