The Hram Collection tackling Intimacy, Sleep, Romance and Nostalgia.
I used the blankets of downtown Amman – Jordan to create clothing that raises questions about intimacy, sleep, romance and nostalgia. Why do we sleep? Do we wish to go elsewhere better? Or go back to somewhere better we think? Why are these blankets so floral ? Are we wearing them or are they wearing us? Are we looking for intimacy, sleep or perhaps a renewal of a romance?
Observations in the streets of downtown, Amman – Jordan. Blanket conversations.
