V&A: Concept To Catwalk


Can fashion construct future narratives between traditional techniques and modern technology?





Overview
Sub:merge
is a speculative garment designed in response to a subterranean future.

Output

Context
The ‘Concept to Catwalk’ programme was an opportunity to mentor young designers in pursuit of innovation and technology. 

Run by the V&A and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, we had the opportunity to mentor students from Sarah Bonelle School.

Inspiration
The V&A’s fashion archive inspired our homage to pleating while designing future textiles. 

The structure of the head gear was inspired by the architecture surrounding the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
