Helen questions the fatal failure of love in the making process of her senior collection UNLOVED. LOVED(?). Resonating her cynical attitudes and sexual motivations to Film Noir aesthetics, her designs are shifting between the thin line between infatuation and lust, telling a personal story about submission, aggression, vulnerability and greed.
Looking for direct, satirical play on gendered metaphors on femininity, with condensed conceptual and visual study in poems, films and sculptures. With her construction crafts via Gerber Accumark and her free-style draping, she recurred thrifted domestic kitchen wares and handkerchiefs/tablecloths/curtains with 50s aesthetic through contemporary female instinct. Eventually her story ended in nowhere, but she cannot help to ask one more time.
She wants people to be true to their emotions and memories, even those darkest ones, and for that to be makes them powerful – that’s the basis of this collection.
