There are many moments when we want to go back as an "innocent" kid. We all want to go back to the moments of running around, dancing, spinning hula hoops, riding swings, and climbing as a child.
“My Playground” embodies the dynamic those movements of children prancing, all over the playground, by creating interesting silhouettes such as the hoop dress.
The garments are made of a unique materiality constructed by creating childish doodles into digital prints and screenprinting them onto various fabrics. The collection includes beads accessories that are hand-crafted, inspired from childhood belongings.
