I used this sketchbook to document my ideas and experiments around the theme: Awkward Moments. My aim was to create a project that showcased the instances you might describe as uncomfortable. I transformed these instances into illustrations and used them to decorate personal items. The idea being that by wearing the outfit, you have the chance to re-evaluate if it truly is an embarrassing moment, or a situation everyone can relate to. The sketchbook contains fabric samples, dye experiments, fashion illustrations, and observational drawings that all helped me to decide what the final outcome (or outfit in this case) would be.
