Abstract

In a Post-Apocalyptic world resources are limited. The way civilization worked in the past no longer applies to the present. Every day is survival of the fittest and every night individuals go to bed appreciative they made it through one more day. My garment, "The Dead of Winter-Shood Boucle Jacket" is rooted in this concept. Sticking with the concept of modernizing Post-Apocalyptic costumes, it was important to emphasize the juxtaposition of hard and soft elements in this piece. I choose to make the jacket the soft element, having it composed of 100% double-faced wool boucle. On the outside of the garment the edges to the sleeves and patch pockets are fuzzy and distressed. The sleeves have an open side vent attributed to being 'perfectly imperfect.' The large shawl/hood combination functions as a source of warmth and pays homage to nature and the textures of natural furs found in the wilderness.
