For this collection I found inspiration in cities. I looked at both beauty of their tall linear structures along with the crumbling, deteriorating foundations that they stand on. I wanted to combine both of those aspects into one collection. The bold lines and geometric shapes in the garments represent that clean structural idea of a city, while the hanging sleeves, safety pins, and loose stitches show the part of the city that is barely staying together and could fall apart at any moment.
