To What The eyes Cannot See
A fashion zine existing on both physical and digital platforms in a multimedia format of original images, film and poetry. This attempts to chronicle the emotional journey that is caused by the trauma of sexual violence. The zine aims to open up discourse on the behavioural impacts that shape a survivor’s relationship with their own body, dress and surroundings. It reiterates the insipid cultures of victim-shaming and blaming, asking audiences to destroy such narratives and extend empathy and understanding towards survivors.
This project came from a very personal standpoint, inadvertently becoming a call for closure to the incident, an attempt to forgive myself and break away from the cultures of victim-blaming and shaming.
