After four years of study and research, Davidson wanted to express through her art, the disenchantment she feels with the negative effects of cheap fashion. From the sweat shop bargain buys, to the environmental pollution, this is her portrayal of the downsides of clothing and consumerism.
Davidson created three outfits from her own wardrobe and her friend’s donated items, to portray the vast amount of clothing the average person owns. The stacked denim dress for example highlights the fact that we own so many of the same, or similar style items.
The ink dress represents clothing’s carbon footprint, and the environmental damage done by dyeing in the production of fast fashion. The third outfit, a mass of tiered black and grey t-shirts, illustrates how the number of clothes we own is often way more than we need.
