Aegis is a preventative self defense jacket that is built to prevent the user from ending up in a situation in which they are a victim of physical attack. It is not a lethal weapon that can be used for good or evil, but rather is an extra line of defense to give every-day women another level of security and piece of mind.
A light back brace encourages you to stand a bit taller, exuding more confidence.
Frustrated by the overwhelmingly hyper-feminine/masculine camera bags on the market, as well as their uncompromising bulkiness, I set out to create a camera bag that was both versatile and secure as the average amateur photographer would need. This was a personal project exploring alternative carrying options for cameras, providing a bridge between technical camera bag and regular daypack.
This can act as both a shoulder bag and a backpack through a moveable system of straps and rings that allow for easy adjustability and quick strap conversion.
It has an expandable, front camera pocket that is supported by tension from the shoulder strap and lined with thick neoprene for protection. Made from duck canvas, polypropylene webbing, neoprene, and chambray.
In a society where gender is fluid and the boundaries separating them are blurred, people are open to presenting themselves in a wide variety of ways. The human body is no longer conformed to the traditional stereotypes of the European style of beauty, but instead is a canvas to be sculpted as one pleases to fit their own personal expression. This plays on the concept of passing, and questions what it takes to look male or female. It attempts to add utility to what can already be a demanding activity of body contouring.
Paying homage to the origins of the pocket, this is a structured pouch worn underneath the clothing that modifies the shape of the body. The organic shape flows with the natural curves of the body rather than distorting the silhouette. It allows you to keep your valuables closest to your skin at all times, and is best paired with tunics with an easily accessible chest, such as zippers, snap fasteners, or low-cut necklines.
