World 114, Exploration A

Dress made from multicoloured knitted ruffles.

In World 114, a society has hidden underground for 500 years to avoid colonisation.

This collection is inspired by the shapes and textures of insects and fungi and represents a peaceful and fantastical underground world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
