An international fashion research project exploring the 'craft of use'

My Community

In smaller communities people can more easily see the effects of their own actions on each other and the environment. They can also better understand the ramifications of their choices; allowing them to take responsbility for them. Expressing community through our garment choices sews the seeds of a new type of self-reliance in fashion based on connection to people and place.

Culture Pack

"On my back I have a backpack that I bought in Tijuana, Mexico. I’m very interested in indigenous, Central American or Mexican type of things… my Mom’s from Guatemala and my Dad’s from Mexico so there’s very Mayan/Mexican influence... it’s who I am … and what I love."
