The collection “Touch points” was presented April 11th 2008 in the Nb8 Gallery of the Oslo National Academy of Arts – KHIO – during the exhibition 22gether (two together). “The collection is dedicated both to women and men”. I was inspired by the idea: “The war between the genders is finished”. Basic idea was to give more freedom for self realization by replacing some existing dress codes used in the society. The main idea of the collection was to find new discourse inside the dressing style.
I have tried to find new borders by putting together different qualities of the fabric and details which “normally” is used by opposite sex.
