EXCESSIVISM: A Visual Representation of Over-Consumption

Emerging designer Ji Won Choi creates a visual manifestation of the average closet with her latest collection ‘EXCESSIVISM’.

To illustrate our over-consumption of garments, Choi’s creations are are made up entirely of stripes to represent multiples of one “item” to express her manifestation in a multi-dimensional way, then presented in simple, monochromatic looks that can be manipulated to reshape silhouette over and over again.

“This is excessivism without being excessive. The succinctness of the construction from a single repeated stripe is symbolic of the waste in our society and our need to move away from our compulsive need to hoard items in our closets that remain largely unworn.” — Ji Won Choi
