This is a nonsensically shaped wearable sculpture taking inspiration from Gareth Pugh, it was made to distort the body almost beyond recognition. The headpiece is built around a scrum cap. The coats dramatic shoulders are constructed using cardboard and are embellished with hand rolled crisp packets. The ruffling texture is created by using heat on crisp packets, along with its iconic cardboard back piece which incorporates bottle caps. The body suit is decorated with fruit nets to contrast with coat and even more crisp packets cover the shoes totalling over 400.
