This project focuses in on the bad effects man has had on the natural environment, this is in comparison to my Semester 1 project which focused on the good which man had on the natural beach environment. The main focus is the waste that washes up and litters our beaches, mainly plastic waste. The collection is a series of knitted samples for women's garments which will encourage slow fashion, not to have a quick turnaround and end up in landfill in a short amount of time. Along with knitting other elements will be included; hand manipulation, embroidery and also crochet as working from home means I cannot knit all the samples I want. The project is to encourage recycling and upcycling as no new yarns have been purchased to complete this project.
