The idea for my Final Major Project stems from a previous project in which I looked at the way clothes deteriorate as we wear them. This idea came after noticing the faded colours and tears in a pair of jeans I constantly wore, which I still keep but no longer wear. This led to an idea of ‘ghost’ clothes and I started experimenting with shadow and translucent material with an ephemeral quality.
For my FMP I also intend to research further fashion curation as this tends to deal with the display of past fashions; garments which are kept yet no longer worn.
Above are drawings from my previous project showing ripped/old and deteriorating garments which I already own.
