The Higgs boson is an elementary particle that gives mass to particles that interact directly with it. The way to represent this particle mass-giving process was by disassembling full garments into each individual piece separately. All these pieces are interchangeable with each other. Another way to represent the Boson was through the French Knot embroidery with different thicknesses of woolen threads, that when charged with UV light, these knots glow in the dark. The fabrics also play an important role in the representation of the boson; going through thick and heavy fabrics such as wool, going all the way down to the thin and fragile tulle.
The collection has a very masculine feel to it because is also a tribute to her father, whom she shares the love of physics with.
