Harriet Ogden II

Harriet Ogden's second graduate collection was created for Terry Pratchett's The Carpet People. 

Chief of the Munrungs tribe & the Dust. The book is set amongst the fibres of a carpet. Fantasy creatures such as the Munrung tribe travel across the carpet. Surreal movement and the transformation of the human body lead my research. Parodies of everyday objects from our world were inspirational when designing for these characters (dust, receipt). Harriet Ogden
These costumes came alive with dance and reminded me of some of Nick Cave's sound suits. 

This costume used drop sheeting that is a felt of fabric scraps created using waste textiles, the perfect carpet dust creature textile.
