Euro Kind is a reconstruction of my family's history so that I may find my place within it. It is the realization of my own personal cinematic daydream. This collection is a coming-of-age story told through the framework of costuming. It is a practice in garment design for film; defining the world of my character and designing my garments for the setting of a narrative. My inspiration was family photo albums dating back to the early 1970's when my father's family lived in Germany. I have recreated the narrative of my family history by superimposing a hyper-fantastical version of myself as the protagonist in the story. I do this by mixing textiles from the time period with my own cheeky, contemporary aesthetic and custom knitwear. Character traits manifest as material choices such as corduroy and mohair while silhouette dictates newfound maturity as the collection appears. The coinciding fashion film takes place in my hometown of Portsmouth, NH.
