DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
It tells us about Humanity where the connection arises from the feeling of a comforting hug. In my wardrobe proposal, I evidence its healing effect and that sensation of warmth that heals through the padded silhouette and where the embroidery shows two bodies that embrace each other.
I am inspired by a New Humanity where reconnection arises from the possibility of once again feeling a comforting hug. importance of something as simple as a hug.
In the garments I used materials such as drill and ribbed knit fabric. To make the padding I used 2 layers of wadding and the embroideries were made with artisanal thread used in smooth embroidery, which is made up of long stitches with a chenille needle and Russian with kantan needle being small and curved stitches.
