cutting edge

This was a side project of She Man collection. Yelena wanted to create a symbolic material to create clothes. For this she decided to cut up women's nightgowns. The idea was to knot a thread to knit garments. This material is suggested in the illustrations of the collection. The creation of this thread became an ongoing performance in public transport. Yelena used to do the cutting on her way to and from art school between Rotterdam and Utrecht.
