Fashion can be used as a tool to disguise one’s identity or reveal it. Looking back at the history of fashion intertwined with cultural collisions, we can as an industry only be excited for the future combinations that are yet to come from the growing ‘mixedness’ of today’s society. Multiraciality being the fastest growing demographic of the population around the world. My final year publication was on the duality of multiracial identity; complexities of mixed identity creates an abnormality in societies binaries. Falling between two cultures, races, social groups etc. creates a grey area of underrepresented identity, my publication explores how this affects those people and celebrates their uniqueness.
This publication derives from my personal experience of multiraciality, it is only appropriate that I include elements of my own identity. Archival imagery provides insight into my identity, the family that influenced who I am today. The visual captures of memories and experiences, of two halves becoming one.
