The [Fallacy] Transitional collection is inspired by a conversation that influenced my perspective of society. A teacher once told me that pursuing a career in fashion would eliminate the need for my intelligence in math and sciences. I would be wasting my brain. The concept that a creative industry is not an intellectual industry is a fallacy. The [Fallacy] Transitional collection challenges the perceived conceptual divides between the creative and intellectual. Using juxtaposition in colour combinations, playing with proportion and remaining gender fluid, the [Fallacy] Transitional collection is a proposal to move beyond the familiar and mainstream, rejecting traditionally molded minds.
