Re-i is a mini-collection of sculptural fashion that portrays modern day past. It explores the relationship between reality and fantasy, as well as the architectural aspect of garments. Drawing inspiration from Gothic architecture, the collection emphasizes bold triangular shapes that create walls around the body. Each garment acts as its own individual character within the theme of redemption and celebration of femininity. By using 100% found materials such as zipped bags, paper clips, staples, flooring and donated fabrics; the collection redefines the purpose of materials and the “high-end” concept of fashion.
