Dresses Depict What Mental Disorders Look Like In The Brain
The 'Changing Minds' project challenges students to create garments inspired by conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia.
Second-year fashion design and knitwear students from the University of Southampton‘s Winchester School of Art have designed garments inspired by research into medical conditions. This unique project, ‘Changing Minds,' has been held over the last three years to help explain neuroscience through fashion.
The students use research into conditions such as schizophrenia, stroke and Alzheimer's disease in order to design garments that represent and demonstrate the effects of these conditions in a physical or artistic way.
