Metaphorical concept: ‘Identity armour’ Textures and techniques of clothes act as protective layers of identity in our everyday life. Socially, we can use these tools to exaggerate, construct, conceal and express our identity behind these layers. The shoot explores wearers emotional connection/relationship with the garment. The garment alone is Objectified and Fetishised, but put on becomes an extension of the body/ identity. Do we seek a balance between our ‘naked self’ & ‘public identity’ ? Can one embrace slow fashion clothing, allowing it to be in harmony with self? Embrace the honesty in expression?
