My topic of this collection called ‘The Cover’ is people’s reaction to the society around them. Inspired by people around me in my age, I see them struggle with their negative thoughts. For this, I first did a series of photography about death. Unintentionally, sometimes people lead their conversation to topics like suicide. We as teenagers has been carrying a lot of pressure and from my observation, people tend to cover themselves up when they are out in society, most of them were not showing their true facade. Thus I decide to do a whole collection to call up people’s attention to let them realize that they had been hiding themselves. There are many reasons that people were wearing covers, one of the reason is due to the complex of the society. Even though people around me are mostly students, but they already have many roles to expound. In the school, they are students, they need to show friendly, positive, kind characteristic. Back home, they are daughters or sons, sisters or brothers, they still need to behave appropriately, set example for the younger ones, show matureness to their parents. To fit in the environment around them, they have to cover and put tags on themselves, and who knows what has happened inside? People hide their negative thoughts and bad feelings inside but they might be already burning inside and I want to show their struggles. Therefore, my design is a full set of garment with five layers. The first layer is an outwear with shape of a cage to show that people has locked themselves up, second layer is a garment made from feather and tags attached to the garment to present the cover people are wearing, third layer is a dress made from organza which is the last tempt to conceal themselves, forth layer is a red jumpsuit with burns to show the inwardly struggle, the last layer is a nude jumpsuit for the clean look when there is no cover anymore.
From my point of view, fashion is a media enables you to present your ideas visually to others. With this project I want to show the changes society did to us, made us wear a cover and further to show what is under the cover. It is amazing to turn vague thoughts into actual objects, into garments and into fashion.
