I am intrigued with societies living under strict political regimes and it has been a great experience to work to transfer the ideology/propaganda into a collection of garments that would appeal for a contemporary customer. I played around with the idea of uniform and limited access to variety, which could be easily linked to the era. Crowd mentality was promoted by the government as individualism and independent opinion were considered a threat to the running of the society. All of these ideas emerged in my collection through the garments I decided to use (e.g., uniform-like silhouettes) and through the details I implemented (e.g., pockets that stand out).
