Hand Conscious

Juliette Delforge wants to slow down the rate at which we buy and discard fashion and enhance our experience of owning garments. With her ‘Hand Conscious’ range of jeans she has tried to achieve this not only for the wearer, but also for the designer, by creating a time-consuming, physically demanding and sensitive design. The work consists of experimentations with denim, because it is a democratic material that everybody can identify with. The designs combine an industrial cut with delicate hand-drawn embellishments and unusual materials. Juliette celebrates signs of wear as a form of poetry; a signifier of the ongoing interaction between the item, its wearer and the environment.
