This project is getting to an end but the research could go on forever, I realize there is a lot to find in the theme of protection. I made a deeper research about what other designers did with the same inspiration and I couldn’t find any other collection with the same perspective than me. So therefore I am glad about everything I looked up and the ideas I had. I could still continue and change everything again, go deeper and deeper into the protection theme.
But finally, I have to say that my inspiration point could be called : instinct. Because both things I use in this collection (decoration and protection) come from the reasons why we started covering our bodies in the first place, and after all this we see it is because of our instinct, we felt like covering ourselves just to feel decorated or protected (these are not the only reasons but two really important ones).
Thank you for following and I hope I will be able to show more about the collection very soon …
