The collection was inspired by a set of photographs taken of a government building on my visit to Hong Kong. The main focus of this building was its design features: it was empty in the core with metal bars on the outside, creating an environment with the feeling of compression and imprisonment. According to the local Hong Kong press, a large number of suicides happened within this building, which was a focal reference point within the collection and translated into the garments through the nature of the city – as though the inhabitants are within a cage surrounded by bars.
