Dress & Emotion is funded by Parsons The New School for Design and seeks to explore the emotional and sensory act of dressing. The work seeks to investigate themes of body image, identity/self-curation, representation and the messaging of dress: How do we see ourselves? What comes first? The Body, the image we seek to create or does one create the other? Are we dressing a body image that is real or imagined? Do we see dress as a uniform, persona, provocation or protection?
