Designer-maker and embroidery specialist inspired by secondhand garments. This project questions why images of women become a political statement. Each garment was chosen for the aesthetic and the embroidery enhances the garment through colour and composition. Playing with juxtaposition and the idea of ‘reclaiming’ female sexuality through ‘reclaiming’ garments.
Using a machine embroidery technique translating photography and adding beadwork details using recycled jewellery. This piece has been translated from my own photography of a friend shouting. My work is inspired by social media nowadays and how people have a very superficial outlook, a woman's body having to fit a certain 'trend'.
These pieces are wearable, social pieces of art, made to ask questions and start discussions.
