Locks of Lasers

PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

Inspired by the discoveries along a solo backpacking trip across six countries in Europe; specifically, linear architecture in London, England, and the recently removed ‘Love Lock Bridge’ in Paris, France. This monochromatic, avant-garde look contains elements including: laser-cut acrylic strips which are hand-sewn perpendicularly into the seams of the 22 panels constructing the vest; as well as, laser-cut acrylic locks in conjunction with functioning, metal locks. Underneath, is a one-piece jumpsuit with a harness worn on top. Overall, this look explores silhouette, texture, and innovation— without the reliance of color.
