The concept of our design is about not forgetting about the past and learning how to bring it into the future. Our main material floppy disks are a thing of the past. They have no purpose in today’s high-tech world as newer better ways have been found to store information. This also applies to the VCR tape and the negatives that we used in our dress. However, these materials once stored precious memories and information which seem to be forgotten about similar to our heritage or sometimes the elderly. They are there but at times we can forget their importance and seem to think that they are stuck in the past. Our dress demonstrates how one can bring the past into the future. We have given our materials a new lease of life a new purpose rather than gathering dust. Through our design we are showing how there’s is space for the gems of our glorious past.
