A Chronicle of Grief

In the Victorian era, widows were expected to mourn for two full years.This gives the idea that grief has a beginning and an end, which in my experience is not at all the case. Grief is not a straight line with a starting point and an end point, it is more of a circle, an infinity. In my thesis collection, I explore round shapes and intricate fabric combinations that symbolize the endless rainbow of feelings accompanied by grief.

A  front view of the dress where you can see the chainmail cape, which represents the heavy feeling of grief; the weaved corset, which represents the complicity of dealing with loss of a close one; and the pleated skirt, which I used in an unconventional way and created circler shapes to show the endlessness.
