Verbatim : Expanding the Concept of Logo-mania

This concept portrays the message my brand name “Verbatim” conveys, which is a metaphor for nonverbal communication, and the wooden “#1 Pencil” logo, which is a symbol toward a deeper analysis for any individual to create from the source by connecting back to one’s roots. This project is in reference to my current view on society. At times, individuals may have a black-and-white perspective on certain sensitive topics and do not pay attention to our stories that make us who we are.

A person is able to interact with the garment and flip each page, accompanied by over 100 organza squares sewn on top of the bottom of the dress at the hip line in order to create a page-stacking effect.
