BRITISH, BORN 13TH DECEMBER 1990
CNMI - Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana Award Coin Excelsior Award
Moon’s MA Collection is focused on creating a utilitarian womenswear collection, at the same time contrasting gender formalities. Her research stemmed from ideas of mass-production and homogenous culture. Looking into the idea of what makes “womenswear”, she designed a uniform that was collaged and created from traditional men’s suits and formalwear. Using simple traditional workwear shapes, this “uniform” changes through the manipulation and development of textiles. Each garment is then rendered bespoke through the use of unconventional industrial materials.
