Plastic Surgery... Our first Fashion Collection

Plastic Surgery. A Collection.

"Now every girl is expected to have: Caucasian blue eyes, full spanish hips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits"


- Tiny Fey, Bossy Pants

Our first collection was designed as commentary on the increasing unrealistic standard women's bodies were expected to achieve.
In 2016, plastic surgery was becoming more normalized. The Kardashians were famous, and it was easy to run into get a procedure done over night.


While researching, Rachel figured out that breast enhancement surgery is constructed in the same way a bra or corset is. The cuts are places the same. Skin and fabric are darted and taken out at the same places. That discovery led to our collection. 


We wanted to make clothing that would allow the wearer to have control over her own body shape. Through a pulley system the wearer would be able to tighten and loosen the garments as she wanted, changing her shape to suit her preference. 

It was an ambitious undertaking. The clothing needed to be transformable. A combination of pulley's, buttons, slits and graphics were used to create a clothing that could go from being oversized to correct proportions for any shape



At the time, I lived in Vancouver and Rachel lived in New York. We would spent hours every night over FaceTime collaborating and designing the collection. My apartment was covered in drawings, techpacks, and inspiration. I roped my brother, who also lived in Vancouver, to help me put together samples.






Rachel created dress shirts that had laser cut leather graphics of typical plastic surgery markings.

MARKED DRESS SHIRTS

Rachel created dress shirts that had markings similar to those that would be put onto the body during plastic surgery. 

PULLEY SYSTEM

Example of what our clothing looked like. The red and blue are different pulleys that can be adjusted to change the garment shape.

THE X-RAY DRESS

The dress is cut out in front, mirroring an X-RAY, so the garment underneath shows through.
