When one pictures punk they may first think of chaos, anarchy, and carelessness. However, there is a dimension beyond this in the corresponding DIY movement. Meticulous placement of patches and studs show there is take great care taken in crafting an identity. Similarly, when imagining scientific research, one may consider a sterile, pristine environment where everything is carefully calculated and planned. This is often far from the truth, with members “hacking” together unconventional solutions and methodologies.
This collection parallels the contradicting similarities between the process of creation in punk and research. It draws influences from these seemingly disparate sources, using unconventional materials and manipulations as a form of experimentation and rebellion. The clothing reflects a persona of strong, intelligent and rebellious woman.
