HAN'S BISCUIT FACTORY

The focal point of this project is my beautiful mum, my inspiration. This project focuses on fond childhood memories growing up in the 90’s captured through a series of photographs. Coming from an Indian background but being born and raised British has allowed me to combine the two worlds. This has been expressed through traditional clothing right down to food comparisons and a particular focus on a biscuit factory that my mum used to work in when I was younger. Print ideas and colours have been extracted from various family imagery. Being dressed in many layers to keep warm, put in hand me downs and boys clothes, was an everyday task for my mum which has informed the development of oversized silhouettes, shapes and details within my design work. Dealing with loss and all the emotions that come with have been emphasised as well as an element of religious views which allows me to believe that although environmental and genetic factors come into play, in the end whatever is destined for you will happen through the will of God. Being at peace with this idea has allowed this project to be a homage to her and her life.
