"Dangerous Fabrics" project

For the "Dangerous Fabrics" project I created three series of samples. One series consisting of ring-pulls from drinks cans stitched in different arrangements (to experiment with the concept of flexibility), another series involving nails attached to quilted fabric in different ways, and a third series which consisted of paracetamol capsules stitched to plain fabric in different arrangements. The paracetamol samples, I felt, were the most successful because I was able to create beautiful fabrics which would only be dangerous if used for specific garments. This led me to design a series of garments consisting of swimming costumes and rain coats (and even dresses).
