När Moderniteten Kom Till Min Gata Hemma i Stan. / When Modernity Came To My Street Back Home in Town.
University of Brighton
A collection inspired by the idea of communality & functionalism during the era of ‘Folkhemmet’ in Sweden’s history. The aesthetics of functionalism was explored & incorporated within the tailoring aspects of the collection. From the idea of communality, communal laundry rooms emerged in Sweden in the 1950s. Through this idea, a research and concept around draping hanging clothes emerged, which was integrated in the collection in the form of hanging and reconstructed shirts.
