My message is that the homeless aren’t dangerous rejects from society like the media would lead you to believe, but rather simply struggling people in need of assistance. Every human being deserves safety, necessities, and dignity. In this ensemble, manipulated and sewn cardboard is the main media. Cardboard is one of the most common materials associated with homelessness. This ever present and often discarded packing material is commonly used for insulation and improvised shelter. Through the utilization of cardboard, my “look” aims to actively address the value of homeless people’s lives. Homeless people face many challenges in an environment that is often designed to be hostile towards them. Because of harmful stereotypes, homeless people often do not get the help they need, but rather are avoided due to irrational fears. The availability of cardboard makes it a great media to convey a message not only for the homeless, but also to incorporate into this outfit. I prepared, folded and sewed different textures and thicknesses of cardboard to create the skirts, top and accessories like the Covid-19 mask, shoes and book bag. I also designed and sewed the shirt using repurposed fabric and a modified vintage pattern that once belonged to my grandmother. I modeled my own design.
