Inspiration

The media portrays women’s bodies as masterpieces of smooth, fat-less, and fit perfection. However, real women’s bodies are composed of creases, lumps, and other bodily imperfections. The beautiful lines formed in-between the formation of creases and lumps should be celebrated.



Inspiration Boards


In addition to the actual bodies itself, artifacts or paintings that resembled  women’s body were inspiration to the design. Fashion that shaped women’s body in unique forms were also considered.
