Due to the current state of world affairs I often encounter peers of my generation to be rather disheartened about the future.When hearing the story of Joan of Arc, a 19 year old peasant who gave hope to the people of France, I felt it was necessary to bring this character to the 21st century. I designed a collection for today's urban warrior; a woman who is embracing uncertain times and rising above the widespread pessimism.
Pulling from images of armor and medieval architecture I designed pieces that could transform for the needs of this character. Employing zippers, buttons, and ties to completely change the look of a garment through length or shape. I also drew inspiration from the idea of protection, designing several outerwear pieces that could truly protect from extreme weather.
