Marit Fujiwara's Fashion Design "Wound" Roars Up Like the Ocean and Forces Us Take Notice of It's Fierceness

Fashion reminds me of the ocean. It is fluid, ever changing and you should never turn your back on it. (click on images to enlarge)

You can lose your footing and it will take you out to sea. You may need a rescue if you aren't on your toes. You must be alert of the dangers that lie in the fierceness of the changing sea.

And, just when you feel confident, the tide completely changes.

It's like when you think you know it all and just gained confidence, the ocean roars up to teach you a lesson of humility.

Reverence. That is what the ocean calls for. As in fashion. Just when we think we k now it all, have seen it all, and it couldn't get any better... a new talent emerges. A new technique. A fresh way of thinking about craftsmanship and design. A new twist on an old trick. Garments in the colors of the sea seem to roar up and make you take notice of their fierceness.

New talent, new techniques, and new ideas are what makes fashion so ever flowing, changing, challenging and exhilarating. Finds like these make blogging fascinating. I was lucky enough to stumble upon Style Bubble and Ambiguous Alliterative Abomination. These gals opened my eyes to Marit Fujiwara's amazing work. Style bubble says with great excitement " It couldn't wait a day, an hour or in fact, a mere minute. I hassled her to unlock her Flickr and allow me to share her graduate collection 'Wound' with you ENLARGED in all its detailed glory. Marit Fujiwara is a BA Textile Design grad from Chelsea College of Art and Design. That's about all the info I have but this is a case where pictures can do an IMMENSE amount of talking..."

I have reverence for her work, as fashion as art , just like I have reverence for the sea.

What does her work remind you of or make you feel?
