Description of Artwork
This work is from my bachelor graduation collection ” Shield of weakness”, which is a experimental menswear collection. This collection starts from a feeling and an emotion when I firstly studied in the academy and stayed in Antwerp, stressful and weak. At that moment, I always want to find out something powerful strong to protect myself and feel safer. The Inspiration of this work is the plastic body cover that used by the people protect themselves in the early corona period.
