"The silhouettes for this collection have evolved from the environmental works of Christo and Jean Claude; the raw photojournalistic works of Jackie Nickerson and the unsettling 'Hidden Mother' portraits of the Victorian era. Also photographs of sourced vintage clothes were collaged to create new shapes and forms.
Various means of covering the body were explored, including: wrapping, concealing, binding, draping layering and encasing. Ideas of finished and unfinished were also explored. Research was also undertaken into the textures of urban environments and these have been expressed through the bleached tonality of canvas, calico and horsehair." Tommy Zhong
