Fantasised Derealisation. Is aiming to question the fantasised luxury ideals in mainstream fashion and present designs with the spirit of anti-fashion in relation to my political protest against the relentless ethnic cleansing and displacement of Palestinian people. This collection showcases an eclectic, intentionally discordant blend of bold symbolic prints, and vibrant colours, mixed together to create a sophisticated, daring look.This collection encapsulates how the industry mutes political messages throughout the design process, merging the boundary between high fashion and reality.
