Saida Bruce displayed a subtle range of garments from her Trace-in-Time range at the London College of Fashion MA Showtime Exhibition.
The philosophy behind the work is based on 'Object Interviews'. To quote from the web entry 'Trace-in Time mirrors and accentuates the attributes that people come to love about their clothes. Meaningful detailing and considered silhouettes are formed with strategically placed layers of printed fabrics, intending to portray the physical aging, to communicate the wearers' life experiences. The evolving piece offers surprises that mature and age in time with the owner, thereby creating a direct point of reference to the life of the garment.' - a beautiful way of saying the we should cherish the clothes in which we have been happy and allow them to continue to nurture us as we and they fade and soften with age.
