A TRIBUTE TO THEM

Dissecting the life of the average working-class family, exploring class, family roles and occupations.

Time and time again the working class are exploited and fetishised by outsiders for design. Whilst fashion has one too many times depicted a negative image and in some cases demoralised those who identify with this particular classification, this project evolved from the suggestion of celebrating "working-class-ness" rather than the tired predictable 'chav-chic' / industrial doom and gloom.

Being a part of the industry and from a working-class background it has often sparked controversial thoughts, it felt only right that as someone who is passionate about her roots, to focus in on my own family and childhood in particular. Reviewing shape and colour of nostalgic objects and homing on on the family set-up, roles in which my parents played and the roles within the workplace.
