Future of Historical Fashion

Project details


With my designs I hope to find a way to balance sustainability and the simple enjoyment of fashion with a consciousness of the unique needs of wearers so the future of fashion – which undoubtedly lies in greater concern for the environment – is welcoming to us all. Often, in our age of rapid development and ever-increasing environmental consideration, the quieter voices of less represented individuals are ignored even when positive process is being sought. Because of this, I believe the future of fashion is truly going to be concerned with navigating the tricky issue of catering to society whilst protecting the earth.

I aimed to show the process of developing an idea to better suit this forecast by beginning my entry with an excerpt from my major work, which was an 18th century-inspired costume, then showing how reflecting on this brought me to create a new design that achieved it's original objectives while being more accessible.
