THE UNIFORM OF ANTI-CONFORMISM, BY FASHION DESIGNER JUDITH VAN VLIET
A furry sculpture, a nest, a magic forest, a metaphor, a symbolic design, but especially a manifesto against conformism. Young fashion designer Judith van Vliet expresses her opinion of Western fashion and popular styles with her graduate collection at HKU.
“Our society imposes rules which we respect without asking ourselves why, levelling our unique personalities”. Which is why the collection of the freshly graduated designer displays “a uniform as the expression of a personality, that grows and takes control of the garment itself”.
