Due to COVID-19, restrictions have kept everyone trapped at home, which largely hinders normal social interaction. Younger generations are entering a self-enclosed state of slow life. The restrictions have also prevented me from going out to experience nature and culture, so I turned to my home environment for inspiration. Room of Solitude is a series of costumes about home life. Furniture inspired the silhouettes and textures were inspired by carpets and blankets.
