I tell my story through clothes.Inspired by the Netflix series “Cable Girls” and Thomas Myers’ book “Anatomy Trains,” this unique dress weaves together the concepts of love, communication and connection .

Monarchy is historically a form of governance where power is centralized in one person or family. Leadership in this system is often regarded as a hereditary right, typically passed down through inheritance.
Fashion consumption, on the other hand, can have various influences on society. While fashion can be a tool for individuals to express their styles and identities, it can also lead people into a constant cycle of changing trends, contributing to a specific consumerist pattern.
Monarchy and fashion consumption can similarly influence people’s perceptions and behaviors. Both require accepting the authority of a particular style or governance. Monarchy roots leadership within a specific family, while fashion consumption gathers people under the influence of certain brands or trends.
However, both systems often face criticism. Monarchy can conflict with democratic values and be seen as contrary to the principle of equality. Similarly, fashion consumption is criticized for issues like excessive consumerism and sustainability concerns.
Understanding the compassion of these systems entails a balanced evaluation of their beauties and potential harms. Both can deeply impact people’s lives, but how they are directed and balanced is crucial.”
