Anne Graf: ℝ(Magic)
My collection, ℝ(Magic) exhibits the real aspect of magic that we all experience in this world: electricity. I have incorporated lights, magnets, and various electronics because my friends have commented that electricity is simply magic, and unknowable. I also utilized techniques like 3D printing and full-garment knitting. The theme for the collection is based off of a mythical land of faeries. A girl wanders in and meets mysterious characters, including the Queen of Time, the Faery Prince, the Beetle Villain, etc. The fairyland is not like the quaint ones in storybooks; rather, it is creepy and dangerous, and only beautiful in theory. Most of all, it is unlike the human world. I have used the colors of a remote jungle, which is an unknown and therefore potentially magical place. The garments have been constructed in abnormal ways, to add to the general air of confusion.
