My graduation collection is inspired by modular furniture and Meccano toys for children. I developed an alternative construction for garments. Instead of sewing a garment, I incorporate perforations at the seams and connector elements. The system allows pieces to be assembled without stitching.
I also constructed garments by combining primary shapes.
By laser cutting the material into a specific shape, the shapes be put together without sewing. I combined cheap industrial foam which resulted in a large and exaggerated volume. This material is contrasted with classic matte wools to give it a sense of luxury.
The large stiff foam shape gives it a childlike proportion, which contributes to the toy atmosphere. The result is a very playful collection that can be endlessly be adapted, connected, assembled, replaced.
