Space and the Human Race is my 6-look graduation collection for SoFA Design Institute.
The whole concept revolves around the aesthetic and functional aspects of the space suit, and its significant role in keeping humans alive amidst the harsh environment outside our planet.
All the printed textiles used in this collection are my own digital collages as applied on fabric.
“Forever fascinated by the mysteries of the universe, Reese looks to the stars to tell the story of space and the human race. A multi-awarded creative in the fields of art, music, and fashion, Reese applies her graphic design skills through textile printing by building surreal visual narratives in her signature ‘mixed-media’ aesthetic.
Through quirky, offbeat, and intelligent clothes branded with her tongue-in-cheek humor, Reese applauds the spacesuit for transcending aesthetics to sustain human life, and pays homage to the tremendous human effort towards space exploration.”
