For this project I wanted to re – design an old denim jacket that doesn’t get any wear. Exploring the idea of overgrown brutalist architecture. Needing to expand that idea but not sure how. To achieve the overgrown look I wanted to explore printing onto the denim with real plants from my garden. When collecting the plants I picked up both dead and alive leaves. Giving me the idea to explore the before, during and after the 2019 – 2020 fires. Exploring the overgrown brutalist architecture, connecting it to the fires. Having 3 sections of the jacket being dedicated to : Before, During, After.
