In the 21st century, we as woman still experience a huge social issue in everyday life. It seems as if there is no more gender discrimination in society, but it still exists.
In asian culture especially, the root of male chauvinism is placed so deeply from a long history and culture. That women are suffering from this cultural background. Women are still not recognized as a major member of society. Men and a large portion of society still think that women should stay home and do house duties.
Why do women have to live their lives like that?
Now is the time to change and empower women.
A woman is strong. All gender has to be treated equally.
Can't change the world right away, but can feel stronger and empowered by wearing garments make feel empowered.
The biggest challenge for this collection was fabrication. To give a strong contrast with colors of white and black, I had to go through many experiments to have perfect customized bonding fabric . On the market, the combination of black and white bonded fabric is not produced well due to color issue.
