I’ve been responding to narratives through sculpting ice, knit samples, digital illustration, and moving image. Many will do anything to achieve a dream. Perhaps it’s a universal human condition. It provides us with a sense of purpose and something to work hard for. In some cases, people seek glory even when it means to play with death. To summit Everest requires extreme mental and physical strength. I’ve been working on clothing to contest those conditions. Many who reach the summit do not make it back down. My collection this year is dedicated to the women who have reached the summit of Everest, from Junko Tabei to Lhakpa Sherpa, and many other women who are setting new mountaineering records to this day.
