Meaningful movement, Natural habits, And Intuitive behaviour.

Derived from the German term, meaning a longing to travel to a place where you feel at home, ‘Heimweh’ looks at traditional nomadic qualities in a contrast to a modern society. Exploring the time-honored lifestyle, the pulls of life and a new evolution of nomads, driving the urge to re-nature and trust our instinct in, the tech driven world of today.
Inspired by this way of life, and the idea of how nomadic societies affix possessions to their own body’s and animals when moving, I explored the idea of clipping elements on to the body- merging garments with accessories to develop interchangeable looks. I developed a folded element to my shapes through drape and experimentation, exposed contrast pocket bags sit between the folds to highlight the notion of bundling belongings and activity.
I developed print and colour through exploring a personal meaning to travel and meaningful movement.
