My collection is about ‘Gamer Culture’ and the people who live immersed in computer games in order to outsource the power they lack in the real world.
The initial research involved messy bedrooms of the ‘game nerds’ and how they use random objects to remodel their surroundings in order to cater to their gaming needs, such as putting duvet into the bath tub and using a pizza box as a table to play computer games on. I also visited London Comic Con for garment and styling inspirations and decided to combine elements of fancy dress costume into contemporary menswear. All ideas were then combined to convey the dark humor that exists within the two contrasting worlds of gaming and reality.
