Machine embroidery showing skin soreness using colour and texture.

Journey to the Show

‘The Beauty of Disaster’ is a collection that explores the concept of aging not only the physical themes but also the mental, focusing on the texture, complexion and importance of our largest organ, skin. This thought provoking project aims to present the beauty within the aging process even with all its complexities. through my designing process I aim to challenge the preconceptions around aging and present a deeper understanding of empathy, understanding and acceptance though the aging.

This piece represents the different layers of skin and the healing process of scarring, scabbing and recovery. Using hand burnt organza and cotton in a embroidery hoop.
