As a flowing extension of its previous 3.0 version, 3.1 carries over key items through the renovation of fabrics and patterns and aesthetically removes the original function of finishing techniques to render them as new design elements.
Each version explores the method to re-frame and re-create ideas, emphasising the blurred fluidity between reality and imagination inherent to design. Our destructive and reconstructive approach culminates in the fixed-explosive; where the movement of design, a state of constant change, becomes a permanent and unalterable garment.
