I would like to capture the beauty of how we are staying strong to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
We, as humans, have overcome countless diseases in the past. Now, we have a new challenge. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is used and worn everywhere against the virus that can not be seen. However, under the masks, gloves, and visors, we are not invincible. The virus has spread to the world before we knew it and could take proper preventative action.
In my fashion design, I combined personal protective equipment (PPE) with armour, shaped wear, and corsetry to portray the modern warrior. The light, translucent, sheer materials in various hues of blues are in contrast with tiny shiny red glass beads. These beads represent the invasion of COVID-19 into the body via the lungs and are symbolic of the war we are in with the coronavirus.
We must and shall continue our conversations and keep our minds open, as we are in this together, but at a distance.
