As far as the harness evolution goes I wanted to transform the look and experiment WITHOUT leather. The designer who truly opened my eyes on cross body attire was Zana Bayne. I find it interesting how she took the harness look and made it more elegant and fierce. As appose to the stereotypical bondage look.
As for my vest I wanted to create a statement. It’s about observing something that is happening in reality and forming your own thoughts about it. You don’t have to “understand” it. Nor is it meant to entertain you. The chains are meant to relate to the message. Which go far beyond painted words.
