Throughout the whole collection, I aimed to maintain a coherent aesthetic of subtraction and exaggeration. This amounted to garments which alternate empty spaces (bare skin) with voluminous shapes that extend beyond the body. The silhouettes enhance, alter and in some instances, camouflage the body, creating stylised and somewhat caricatural looks. A provoking, comedic approach plays with ideas of forbidden bodies and taboos, covering and exposing areas that are often considered inappropriate when on transgender women.
This first season has a very nostalgic feel to it, as it primarily represents the environment I grew up in as a teen ager. The primary, bright colours serve as a reminder of the careless, playful and somewhat naive 2000s aesthetics, as well as being a reference to the flashy colours sex workers oftentimes wear.
