With this presentation, I continue to tell the story of a generation. One that lived through the 70’s and 80’s; some say it ended in 1984. A generation that had ideals and changed culture in ways that we look up to now as aspirational, or look back at with nostalgia. But it was also a generation that experienced pain and struggle similar to ours.
I tell stories using simple, often exaggerated, tailoring as a canvas. The wearer, a person who identifies with the story I’m telling, in turn uses the collection to tell their own. In a way, this makes these historical anecdotes and stories transcend specific eras and time.
