When we design clothes we design them to fit the body. We construct darts, we gather and tuck, all to accommodate the body’s natural shaping. Interior is about the anatomy that defines the human form: our inner bones, muscles and organs. It is about exposing the fabrication of our bodies and allowing both inside and outside to coexist. Without a body, the dress is merely a collection of abstract shapes and lines; on the human form it is an expression of that which lies underneath.
