This ensemble is my attempt to create a protective cloud in this era of COVID-19. The dress is printed with a pattern of a head sprouting positive thoughts, representing the inner self. The cloak is printed with a protective "evil eye" to ward off illness, and becomes a physical barrier representing the social distance that separates all of us into bubbles of fear and isolation.
