Interaction between contrasting materials, body and space and/or catwalk and audience. By forcing materials to act and interact on body this work aims to nd new expressions and ways of making in fashion. To tell this story a design space was made, ‘Wonderland’, a place where all the ‘Wonder Women’ live. These ‘Wonder Women' are like sisters, di erent from the other. The resemblance lies in the interaction and forceful expression. This collection is the result of a thorough material investigation resulting in a lineup of seven looks. Each made in di erent techniques, the possibilities within this study are endless. This work proposes to all within the fashion eld to not be afraid, to step away from the season-hysteria and do what you want. Tell that story, and may the force be with you.
