My collection used clothing to portray the basic elements of a child’s needs in order to have a content upbringing: security, safety and love. Often people with a history of childhood trauma find it difficult to express their struggles. Here, light therapy is used in the collection as a healing mechanism. Elements of music therapy was also taken as inspiration. The purity of an all-white collection creates a strong focus on the texture and silhouette of the garments. Through fabric choice, comfort, love, affection and playfulness are represented. Hence, these are the basic needs of a child.
