Labels

Isma Shanaaz

What use is a label? Can labels do more than they are currently used for?

Labels could be more than just a piece of paper or a set of instructions on how to look after your clothes. They could provide us with dynamic instructions on how to revolutionise, revitalise or repair the favorite items in our wardrobe. My project is an investigation into extending the life of garments through the use of dynamic labels. I have designed labels that are embedded with multiple functions that can modify its appearance, so that when a garment becomes tired, dated or damaged, it can be brought back to life or even reinvented.
