Episode I: visible/invisible by fashion designer: Christina Tso

‘Seeing is believing. Do you believe what you are seeing?’ Sight often plays the key role among the five senses to enable people to recognise, analyse, identify, and confirm objects of interest. ‘Visible/Invisible’ is the title of Christina’s final collection, which is based on the human senses (i.e. vision, hearing, smell and touch). She particularly focused her research on visually impaired people, due to their ultrasensitivity toward the surrounding environment. Therefore, she created designs which interact with the wearer and viewer by merging various senses into the garments. Whether people are fully sighted or visually impaired, they can use their senses to ‘feel’ the garments by means of their own perception.
