See Things Differently
Garments are both material and message. They cover us up – and reveal us – physically and emotionally. They hold potential to alter how we feel and how we see things, which in turn, change the things we see.
"I’m wearing a t-shirt which I bought from this designer called Alice
Willoughby and she works in England and she creates one-off skirts and
they’re often seen as art pieces as well and they’re much coveted
fashion items but I bought a t-shirt off her from a craft fair in Devon.
And every time I wear it or look at it puts a smile on my face and I
think it does with other people too. I’ve worn it in different
countries. I wore it in Bangladesh when I was doing a residency there.
I’ve worn it in Greece, in England, in America and it always brings
comments so I enjoy wearing it and I feel it’s a good start to […] to
start a conversation with someone as well."
