The collection started from a kind of feeling that ‘stains’ can never be removed but stay as a part of you –this included two aspects: Stains and scars - to be tangible scars they are bloodstains, bruises, burns and surgery scars and also memories as scars – pain coming from indelible memories and how these shape our experiences and contribute to who we are as individuals.
The project is focus on stains as a form of memories and personal identity to give stains meaningful metaphor and transferring them into illusions on garments. It also aimed to extend researches on various stains to find ugly beauty and using hand sculpture latex textiles to imitate scars.
The collection intended to be made of natural fabric with print and plain textile together, such as wool, cotton and silk. About 60 percents of garments in the collection were planed to be digital printed. These include stains and scars images in meaningful illusions. Except digital printing and laser cutting which had been used in previous designs, Meanwhile, one piece of leather jacket with engraved roses was also in the collection. And the final collection has another new textile to display scars, which is a kinds of latex sheet with roses embossments.
