The Skin Under, SS19
Humans exist in layers. A collection of social encounters covered by layers of skin, literally and metaphorically. Our skin are costumes and we mostly show aspects of us that only provide one dimensional representations while our truest forms remain hidden. What is under your skin?
This collection silhouette and fabrication seeks to depict the overlap of social experiences and how different life occurrences reveal ‘hidden’ layers in us. The visuals show different versions of us existing within one realm of reality. The concept of how we live as humans is an idea Nola Black is constantly exploring through clothing expression. Through this collection, we hope to expose these hidden layers to the surface and allow our conscious self exist as the multifaceted, overlapped, evolving social people we already are.
