Read about the idea formation, on prison and solitary confinement, here: [link]

Isolation tells a story:
The collection starts off clear, and with a shimmery jacquard fabric, to represent something like 'innocence' and inexperience. The 3rd look on is a sudden change of scene to jail, and in the 5th look, he, or she, is thrown in solitary confinement, therefore represented by multiple layers of black fabric overcoming the gray walls, and only redeemed by the slight hint of the jacquard, or of skin to symbolize the physical slot in which the food is passed through. In the 7th and 8th look, the pieces have a concrete wall print, meant to convey the 4 walls and the general consistency of life, before he's suddenly released from prison in the 9th. His journey back to 'innocence' of course takes time, and is constantly shrouded by the memory of prison and the maturity he has gained, hence the sheer white fabric. And it is also this that allows him to become more 'innocent' than before. I see innocent as more of a mindset than an actual state of being in this case.
