The Fight for Rights'

This collection was influenced by feminism and the progression of women's clothing, and how the two work closely together. The main inspirations came from the suffragette movement, women's land army, swinging sixties, masculinity versus femininity, and female stereotypes/ attitudes.

The Fight for Rights collection is a contemporary commercial collection, designed for the young modern female feminist. It aims to tackle issues surrounding women's rights by encouraging the breaking down and remoulding of harmful female stereotypes, and by expressing the need to see further improvements within the feminist movement in the future.

Focus is placed on traditional and non-traditional construction methods; with a sexist phrases inspired print design, a selection of new and repurposed fabrics, and a mixture of block patterns, tailored elements, draping on the stand, reduced waste pattern cutting, and pleating.
