This thesis collection began with the idea of a commuter on a train, embarking on a trip. These pieces reflect classic train-crew uniform and suit silhouettes. Drawing inspiration from the railways of the early 20th century, this collection merges the tactile elements of train cars and their crew with the journey of a solo traveler. What a mysterious experience it is, to share this time and space with strangers they may never meet.
