Design Description

Soaring high is based on women flying high over the patriarchal society. The designers created a suit rather than a dress, to break the stereotype of females predominantly wearing dresses, and men wearing suits. “As young women we feel it is important that younger generations to come should not grow up being pressured to wear what is the ‘norm’ in society and should be able to wear what they want to wear”. Additionally, the team chose to add wings to represent that women can fly high and create a new image for women. Women should be seen as equal to men.

MATERIALS USED
