“Perhaps we cannot prevent this world from being a world in which children are tortured. But we can reduce the number of tortured children.” – Albert Camus. This quote resounded in my heart and triggered the research behind this collection. Coming from a family that is pro-education, I am deeply humbled by the harsh experiences that child labourers undergo from a young age. Concurrently, I am also intrigued by the frivolous lifestyles of extremely privileged children. The stark contrast between the two forms the core of this collection. For most garments, I have used bamboo to represent the immense burden that child labourers carry. Bold colours are used as a visual language to invoke a sense of hope and joy. This collection celebrates the innocence of children and magnifies their childlike spirit. Ultimately, as a designer, I strongly believe that fashion has the influential power to make a positive difference.
