The collection is about a subjective measurement. It explores whether measurement can be subjective. It is inspired by human anatomy and body taping methods that athletes use to lessen their muscle stress and improve functionality. I am using elastic knits, body compression fabrics and pattern making techniques to show that measurement can be flexible. The placement of the patterns, gatherings and knits mimics the muscle and body tape positions.
