Am I Being Tricked? 2016

by Sami Hogg

Collection inspired by the delusional impact mental illness can cause. A chaos of colour portrays the array of emotions the mind will allow, inspired by the changing colours of mood rings based on how the wearer is feeling. The cut and silhouette holds a strong shell to hold the contrasting weight of fabric, with curved seams not in the traditional placement question what is real or not. The print working with the cut of the garment suggests that we should look beneath layers, like looking into the mind of the mentally ill. It is a fascinating place. My collection was designed for women but of course I have no objection to it being unisex.
