Volkswagen Mini Portfolio

This project was in collaboration with Volkswagen's 40th Anniversary of the GTI model. My inspiration for this capsule collection started with the GTI car and how it has developed over time. I also looked at the typical person who would drive this kind of car. Due to it’s young and sporty design this model was very popular with the car tuning scene as well as young ‘‘chavs’’.  My garment inspiration came from the Chav peer group, especially from their sporty tracksuits and active wear elements. I reimagined  the GTI driver of the future and included elements of space travel and how he/she could look in 400 years. To achieve a rather conceptual silhouette I worked with collages. I picked one look from this capsule collection and realised it using original materials from the interior of the car and embellished it with fabric manipulations.
