Whether it is constructing an identity, connecting with our senses or interacting in the world around us, fashion forms a deep-seated element of the daily experience. It has been interpreted, manifested and theorised in a multitude of ways and yet, its essence remains elusive.
Pivoting around a "dialogic practice" approach, Soliloquy contemplated my personal journey through fashion thus far and attempted to rediscover a purpose in fashion making. Each item within the collection displayed related to the fashion design process, and was further laden with details of its "value" within this journey. Beside this, a wall held thoughts on fashion's elusive essence and the audience was asked to contribute their own ideas to open up the conversation.
