A True Reflection



The series “A True Reflection” is a self-portrait series revealing my identity through self-made whimsical costumes and, wigs by using unconventional materials. Inspired by Club Kids who were a group of youth dance-personalities from New York City, who created outrageous and eccentric costumes. I began creating my own costumes and, wigs to allow me to create a unique self-expression of myself through fashion. By using material that isn’t typically meant for sewing I created outfits that are emphasizing the texture of the material. I wanted to create outfits that were imaginative, bright in colours, and that were exaggerated. Each portrait reveals a true expression of my identity.
