My inspiration arose from the idea that we are living at a time in which clothing is becoming more and more causal. I was inspired by the idea of one piece of clothing being applicable to any time of day from lounge wear to more formal wear. At the same time, more than ever, we need to be more sustainable with our clothing practices. My insight is that this can be achieved through deception. By using joining methods such as button clasps to change the shape of clothing and by taking advantage of button clasps to create another joining for tromp toile fabric remnants, it is easy to wear the same piece of clothing out and about or just at home lounging on the sofa.
