Hi, my name is Rose Okamura. My junior collection is conceptually rooted in rebuilding the world. I was inspired by eco futurist ideals and the solar punk art movement. Eco futurism’s core concept is rebuilding the world with new technologies that don’t cause environmental harm. The solar punk art movement shows an ideal balance between human structures and nature. My collection is a celebration of this ideal reintegration. Fabric manipulations inspired by natural structures are attached to and integrated with garment. With silhouette’s taking shape from solar punk architecture. I’ve titled this collection “Together Forever” as a playful nod towards the marriage of natural and human structures.
