My Two Piece Collection Statement is based on Multiple Sclerosis and idea of being trapped and confined in a body that is not your own. It plays on the balance of being controlled and losing control. I conveyed this by researching straight jackets and playing on the stand with different materials creating and releasing tension. I eventually came up with a design that had many panels wrapping around and enveloping the body in structured way while also having a balance of softer materials with a print that was reminiscent of brain and nerve ending scans.
