TRANS-MEDIA

SEAMS

MFA thesis, Media Design Program, Art Center College of Design.

I created a trans-media project that includes a high-end fashion collection, a clothing catalog and a website that comments on substandard clothing production, sweatshops. I was inspired by the disparities between the top and low ends of the fashion industry and the human drama behind clothing production, which supports the vulgar opulence of the fashion world.
