My Big Fat Queer Wedding
Entering into the world of fashion has showcased the impact of design and the power it holds to solidify identities or question them. My queer sexuality protrudes into my design identity through learning how to create gender inclusive clothing and evolving a more morally and inclusively aware approach. Sustainability being a driving force behind the collection, the pieces are a mixture of reworked wedding dresses and suits alongside sustainable fabrics. Beginning my collection revisiting and researching moments in LGBTQ+ history, moments that changed my perspective on what being queer even was for me whilst acknowledging the privileges I have today because of these historical landmarks. The collection ultimately exposing the core of my sexuality, a physical representation of what being Queer means to me, resulting in a collection portraying my communities horror filled past in a romantically Queer love story.
