While interning in NYC, I began studying the relationship between our industrialized society and how it interacts with nature. My senior collection was inspired by the complexity of this relationship--illustrating through fashion how these opposing areas both compete and harmonize with one another. The goal of this line is to express the issues we see today with the struggle to find peace between development and the environment. In order to illustrate this complex relationship we find, the collection is composed of synthetic materials like vinyl, neoprene, and mesh in combination with livings plants. The line begins with nature being very kept and in control, with function and structure as the main focus. As the line develops, the plants become less manicured and begin to overgrow the structure they are a part of.
