What if I could design my own funeral?

Death is the most important, and only inevitable, part of our lives. This project started from the question, “what if I could design my own funeral?” 

Characteristics of funerals and biographical elements of my life are expressed metaphorically through a fashion collection. The silhouettes come from the sculptures of Antony Gormley, which are a representation of the coffin. For the colour, which is mainly black and white for this collection, colours representative of a funeral. The patterns and materials used embody the journey of my life.
