Dear Mum,

Dear Mum, (2022)

This collection is a love letter for my mum. Each look within the collection encapsulates 3 different core memories we share and cherish. I started researching nostalgia, where I personally felt these flitting yet overwhelming moments and what they were triggered by. It wasn’t until I started backtracking to the most core memories that I had in my childhood home that I realized all these memories happened to be with my mum. Certain objects that triggered my nostalgia, I came to discover were objects my mum had cherished and taught me to appreciate such as vintage undergarments from the 18th century, the beauty of a wilting flower and in ephemirality. Of times past.
