Splintering of the Mind

Splintering of the Mind

My chosen specialism in the MA Fashion and Textiles course I have progressed onto is illustration but this really developed within my BA Fashion Design Graduate Collection. My concept stemmed from the idea of peeling back physical layers to reveal the naked form in its vulnerable state. This then developed into the psychological layers of the mind and their gradual deterioration. In short, the process of going insane.The monochrome hand illustrations of the knots varying in intensity depict complex mental trauma and the fashion illustration creates a strong image of the strength revealed from behind mental illness.
