UCA BA (Hons) Fashion Design student Caroline Costa has finished her final looks for her incredible Flourish Society collection! Caroline said "Flourish Society is primarily the idea of growing a new society. We are surrounded by conventions and norms that must be challenged or changed. The next generation can be a step ahead if they start to plants the seeds now. We should ALL embrace equality, leaving behind gender norms. Boys and girls, girls and boys. Stop fearing the ideologies and become who you truly are. You simply need to stop performing. It is easier said than done but taking the first steps allows us to reflect on the social codes around us. Society has lost track. Man has lost their human essence. We behave like machines whose only concern is to produce and consume. Society is lost in a vicious cycle. These issues must be exposed to the outside world. We can see it with our own eyes. The innocent human being playing in the landfills. It is time to take responsibility. Maybe my shirt is there or your trousers… You and I are part of the problem but we don’t have to belong to a system that keeps harming us."
