This short film documents the early developmental stages of my Graduate collection entitled 'Life Hangs By A Thread'. Exploring the folklore of European dreaming, the garments showcase traditional textile techniques such as hand pleating and hand weaving. By placing emphasis on women's work and the hand made, Life Hangs By A Thread reties the link between past and present. One should see this short film as prelude of what's to come...
