"Where are you from? Representation of my generation"
DISCOVER THE DESIGN PROCESS
Throughout the process, I wanted to represent and talk about our generation and the time where we all live in. It has been inspired by my surroundings and the process of my growth. I want the collection to be not just a collection of garments but voices about this new global societal phenomenon of floating identities in this new world.
I've done this collection with 4 of my friends who I have met in London, UK. As men who live in in London and all have diasporic identity, we shared our stories and personal opinions giving each other a sense of belonging. Although we have gone through differ-ent things to become a person who we are right now, we share similar stories about ourselves. I believe we are endlessly trying to understand who we are and where we are standing in this world where the question "where are you from?" became old-fashioned and pointless to ask.
It is all about communicating with these guys making representations of ourselves. Anyone who can identify themselves with the stories or understand can be my hero. Through the collection, I wanted to make the people feel personal to the clothes and comfortable in the community we stand for.
