Graduate collection: 'A Journey: East to West'

(2019)

Inspired by my grandmother’s journey from Indonesia to Holland as a young woman, this project explores the idea of cultural hybridity. The collection merges contrasting elements from Eastern and Western cultures and explores how their divergent characteristics can be blended together. The topic of cultural exchange is of particular relevance in today’s political climate of change and uncertainty. Therefore, a primary aim of this project is to encapsulate the beauty of diversity.
