With my early sketches I explored possible ideas and materials to make my project. I thought about aluminum cans, paper and bags of chips.
My Inspiration was Mexican Women during the Mexican Revolution. They wore bullets around the body and I wanted to create a piece that mimicked one.After I saw the exhibition, I noticed a lot of pieces were made to be armor so I wanted to incorporate that aspect.In Mexico, the sell on the streets purses made of woven chip bags, so I though I could combine both ideas and make a set of belts one worn around the waist and one around the upper body. I made my project from an old Vogue magazine.
