Chaney’s final year collection: Pleasure 41 is a conceptual project about the kinky relationship between people and dress. Her work explored the historical norms and restrictions of proper dress to reveal the obscure sexual pleasure of corporeal discipline.
The initial idea was highly influenced by where she was born and educated. Her personal and cultural background “has provided her with a root to grow her own fetish towards disciplines and restrictions.”
Chaney’s work also aims to bring up diversity towards nowadays fashion language, and to revive the craftsmanship in her making process.
Chaney will continue an MA in Central Saint Martins’s womenswear from this October. She will continue her research around female sexuality, gendered issue, politics and pleasure.
