Give Yourself the Wings to Fly…

The likes of rapper Macklemore and designer Jeremy Scott, push the boundaries of creativity and acceptance. Both artists use wings in their own way, intricate design and metaphorically. An organism with wings is one of fragile existence…

…you wouldn’t hurt a butterfly.

My design is influenced by this concept of wings. Macklemore and Jeremy Scott have inspired me to create a body with freedom and individuality expressed through the wings seen in my design. Incorporating a mix of masculine and feminine components, i have also created a blur in the lines of gender. My ‘wings’ gives the wearer the freedom whilst also protecting their fragile nature.
