Project: Adult Uniform
LinkedIn: Emma McRobie
Adult Uniform is a conceptual collection that embodies my lived experience of wanting to feel like a ‘grown-up’ whilst still retaining an element of youthfulness and the emotions around this concept. This collection has been resolved through the responsive, critically engaging process of ‘play’ involved in construction techniques and textile explorations.
The concept of Adult Uniform, has a dual meaning. In part it references the purpose for this collection which is to act as an employment tool to showcase my skills in my portfolio, a uniform that will progress me into ‘adulthood’. Furthermore, it refers to this collections overall aesthetic which is a mature, yet energetic take on traditional corporate wear, combined with streetwear styles.
