Stephanie Jade Lewis : s3780823 : Fashion design re-use
My project statement: I am very interested in patch work and I am constantly inspired by many designers that I follow on instagram who are creating incredibly intricate and unique designs incorporating patchwork elements. The reason why I’m so drawn to patchwork is because I believe it is a beautiful design technique that allows for me as a designer to re-use materials that would otherwise be wasted. It takes emotionally durable designs that people feel connected to as they could be from parts of clothes that the individual has had intimate experiences in. The main idea of taking elements of these clothes is to preserve them and give them a new life which I think is extremely poetic and nostalgic for the wearer.
