World 180

In World 180, there is unit that physical, psychological and socio-cultural characteristics are analyzed as part of a system. In order to achieve the best version of oneself, the pieces designed by designers are sewn by high tailors to create a capsule wardrobe and experts determine the style of the person and improve the quality of life. Ceremonies are included in this life. Grace trainings are provided. A center that designs everyone’s life… Clothing, accessories, cosmetics, skin care products and perfumes are not sold outside this center. The existing natural beauty is revealed and protected, so there are no aesthetic operations and touches in this universe.

“There is no concept of “more”.

Analyzes: Leave it to the experts and enjoy your life!

Ceremonies: Happiness increases with the meaningful time that shared.

What if …

there is a center that enables us to reach the best version of ourselves and we exit the system that forces us to have ‘”more”? All individuals over 18 years of age are admitted to the center and visit a grace area in the province where they are located twice a year for a one-week period, receiving training and reanalysis according to new situations.

Issue:

The fast pace of life affecting all areas of an individual’s life, forcing people to constantly pursue of ‘more’ and ultimately reducing the quality of life. The competition to be different from others. The concept of elegance and grace are taking an unusual turn.

Inspiration:

The tentative production before the industrial revolution (slow fashion, crafts), the dress code, the idea of going back to ceremonies that allow to slow down and enjoy the moment, the social and systematic order are the inspiration for the design of this universe.

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!
