    The Invisible Boundary

    The Invisible Boundary is a women’s wear collection inspired by deep-sea bioluminescent creatures and their fin movement. My collection conveys the excitement of excavating things that have not been discovered yet, creating a strange nostalgia for a place and a time one has never lived. This is expressed through silhouette, color, material and craftsmanship. I have chosen hand-cross stitching as the main technique for fabricating my collection. It starts from one hole punch, which gradually grows stronger as I repeat the process. This traditional handcraftsmanship gives a breath of life to the deep-sea creature.
