Fashion Design with Textiles BA(Hons)

My theme is body image particularly looking at distortion and
enhancing the body shape. Power dressing has also been a key con-
cept looking at mens tailoring and how women have worn it to gain
power. Including Madonna who sent tidal waves wearing the bullet
bra designed by John Paul Gaultier. The garment was paired with a
pin stripe suit, a power move of embracing women’s bodies. Which
looks at evolving trends of corsetry, these have been a wardrobe
staple since the Covid 19 pandemic. People have used corsets as
vessel of taking back power rather than suppression, like in the
past. Some key trends within my designs are feminism, empowerment,
womanhood and body positivity.
