In World 194, the burning of fossil fuels and carbon emissions rapidly increased in 2015 due to higher authorities downplaying the importance of climate change; resulting in the world becoming uninhabitable for humans.
Authorities then created a simulation, in hopes of concealing their wrongdoings, and led humanity into this deluded reality; a specious present of a boundless utopia.
(PATCH 15.1) first publication aims to unravel the truth that has been hidden from society by higher authorities through a series of thought-provoking fashion imageries, abstract narratives and garments that challenges the reader to seek their own stance and form their own truth.
