KIN

KIN (World 157) is a fictional world created as a part of 'fashion fictions', a project led by the Nottingham School of Art and Design, that provides a space for exploring alternate fashion systems. In KIN's world, obstructive censorship of sexual identity no longer exists and the society parallels away from Southeast Asian colonization. Individuals are granted acceptance and freedom of expression beyond sexuality to rediscover non-dual identities through a post-humanist lens, freed of a gender system, illuminating hope and power birthed from a new reality that blurs the line between what is real and what is constructed. This collection stems from a space of post-humanism in fashion, including the concept of the cyborg manifesto by Donna Haraway. There is opposition of binary categorization of humans through clothing, by use of fabrics and silhouettes that 'free' the body. Taking inspiration from the patterns of traditional Malaysian garments, the use of rectangular patterns with minimal sewing and almost zero fabric waste are produced. Textiles are further developed by the deconstruction of traditional Malaysian prints, such as florals, to create contemporary embroideries in the collection.
