Tactility is a textile collection that has therapeutic benefits for individuals affected by ADHD. Touch is a powerful sense, tactile stimulation increases attention span and the capability to remember information. Two types of sensory inputs have influenced this project: Energizing Input and Calming Input. Use of an all-white colour palette gives a disconnection from visual elements, and allows the textural surface to be more tactilely engaging. The main processes used were embroidery and silicone.
Designed using the local bridal industry’s remnants, coalesce combines high tech and slow fashion. The laser-cut, modular textile creates a unique lace which can be combined and rearranged, disassembled and made new.Here, the notions of the modern bridal industry are challenged, aesthetically and systematically. coalesce investigates a sustainable approach to bridal-wear where love and respect are extended to resources as well as each other.
