GRAND ILLUSIONS OF A GREAT FASHION ESCAPE
For her Fashion Masters collection Sunna Örlygsdóttir took the notion of fashion as a social phenomenon apart and instead meditated on what she wears if nobody was watching. “What happens when one year and ten days is spent in solitude? Will it give me freedom to be so far away from fashion and the gaze of others? How do I dress when I only dress for myself?” These are some of the questions she answered while lovingly composing, constructing and embellishing her intuitive clothes with whatever existing garments and materials she had at hand, including tape, nails, plastic burlap, nylon straps and an oilskin tarp.
