PCB Top Progress
I’m working on this garment as a part of my thesis where I will be creating other “yellow” women (East Asian women) using race making technologies and Western visual culture/language and exploring my relations with them/myself.
I was greatly inspired by the Alexander McQueen for Givenchy F/W 1999 collection’s transparent, hard body suits with LEDS. I was also inspired by the modular nature of Paco Rabanne dresses. These made me choose to use acrylic to build a hard top that suggests a body even when the garment is not worn by anyone. For more inspirations, see my are.na board.
