    Inspired by Siamese twins –fascinated by the fact they can never leave each other’s’ side. I designed a garment that physically joined the wearers together by the sleeve. I used bridal like fabrics to give the impression of a matrimonial bonding to one another symbolising an everlasting and committed relationship. I decided I wanted to play on sculptural forms to morph the girls bodies which would challenge perceptions of ideal beauty. The underlying concept of my work is to challenge women’s dissatisfaction with their bodies by creating sculptural forms that do not mirror a specific or ideal body type; juxtaposing modern silhouettes and creating undesirable shapes through fabric manipulation and sculptural cuts. By making different zones of the body disproportionate, my clothes are artificially changing the female form, therefore uniforming and desexualising the female body.
