The Layer On collection is the outcome of a much longer period of time, and with it I presented myself at the Fashionclash festival in Maastricht. It’s about human skin and sets skin changes – that often remain hidden under the layers of garments – to the surface. Textile is manipulated in different ways such as wrinkling, ruffling and dyeing by hand. Garments show different experiences – the appearance of various skin changes that are chronic or caused by time (skin rash, wrinkles, strokes, seams) but also changes caused by wearing tight clothing, which leaves a short-term trace on the body surface. Attention is particularly focused on vitiligo, a chronic condition characterized by depigmented areas of the skin.
