My Graduate Collection is named “I Exist”. I began researching mourning fashion and jewellery which used hair as a keepsake, and began to see their documentation of lost loved ones as a performance of grief. Throughout the ages, humans have had a desire to document their life, through fashion, still life art, and via social media. People tend to document and display their life when they feel invisible, as a need to prove their worth, or, when a group of marginalised people don’t get the recognition they deserve.
