Humanity, throughout history, has reached many disastrous points, but it seems that nothing is as fatal as the one that is approaching; Global Warming is our apocalyptic destiny; it is a common problem shared by all Planet Earth’s inhabitants; a forecast that challenges the existence of our future generations. My collection seeks to define a solution against this catastrophic prediction. I incorporate motives of protection, defense, and familiar survival uniform into a futuristic body of work, which is highly charged with fear of the unknown. The color pallet is alerting, as the orange and yellows are driven directly from the uniform and accessories of the armed forces. Various shapes and elements from the field of extreme-sports such as diving and parachuting inspire the garments. A combination of three female and two male garments, the piece are constructed in several multi- functional layers that together suggest the role of a survival kits.
