Collection 3: Feel the Light

‘Feel the light’ is a garment inspired by the relationship between light and darkness. In this garment, Christina has installed fibre optic lights, so that the light can be switched on and off. She wants to express the fact that, in the darkness, people are unable to ‘see’. Yet, after the fibre optic light is switched on, the dim lights on each fibre will create different move¬ments according to the wearer’s movement. As a media of expression, the movement of the garment can be an expression of the wearer, and the dim light can create “light movement” which can be drawn into a “visible” message.

this garment is made by paper-mâché
