The Body Extension focused on the construction of a piece of bodywear that would extend a certain part of the body that is backed up by a concept. Based on my personal anxieties of being looked at, I designed a headpiece that would obstruct my point of view, as well as other’s perception of my presence, from then rebrand myself as an unapproachable and distant being.
The headpiece is constructed from acetate and polyester stuffings on wire, which make the design extremely dynamic and flexible and can be worn in multiple different ways, depending on how much coverage the individual need. The project is a compilation of my personal interest in acetate and transparency, and the spontaneity in wearable design.
