Isolation (Wellbeing)

This project was a result of our time spent self isolating during the early weeks of the pandemic. For the year I worked to create a capsule collection based on the theme of Wellbeing, intended to be showcased in a Fashion Show at the end of the college year. I had interpreted Wellbeing as a sense of physical security both inside and out, what we encapsulate our bodies with to feel secure and also what we put inside of our bodies to feel the same sense of security. The short video was a result of wanting to showcase the pieces from home. Stop motion was used to create the video, I wanted to create something interesting and whimsical, showing the pieces come to life and creep around the house, isolated from the world. I believe this style of shooting captured the uneasiness, being cut off, being isolated and alone and feeling stranger each day. Isolation became the working title of the piece because it connects back to the original theme of Wellbeing and how lack of social interaction or even purpose over a prolonged time can have a massive effect on our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
