big jackets, 'gloves straps', shoes - wrapping
Ernest Shackleton and his crew struggled to survive for months against the odds in the big freeze of the Antarctic;
The ship, the Endurance, became trapped in the ice and was eventually crushed before sinking into the Weddell Sea;
The 28-man crew was left stranded in makeshift camps on the ice, battered by punishing and extreme conditions;
Haunting images reveal astonishing insight into the men's fight for their lives in the 'world's last great wilderness' .

FINAL OUTCOME ALL PHOTOGRAPHS KAROLINA DABEK
5 SELECTED IMAGES
I choose those 5 images because they are fully represent the concept behind the garment and alteration of them.
I started my research with Sir Ernest Schackleton statue which was my public art of choice, so first two pictures are from his north and south pole expeditions, I was inspired by the clothing for the extreme weather conditions. It's shape and practicality.
During work in the studio we had to find an interesting silhouettes within our public art drawings, I choose the eye shape of my statue and then created 3D form out of it which was looking like a futuristic headpiece which reminded me a Star Wars or an enormous sleeve.
My colour of choice was white from the very beginning, My key words for this colour choice would be: arctic, emperor, armor, 'snowstorm in the galaxy'.

I think that is pretty unusual picture, It has a great dynamics and colour palette.
On the right side you can see one nun with a floating sleeve, together with a headpiece from J W Anderson x Star Wars collaboration you can see on the left side it gave me an idea how I want my garment to look on the body.
WHITE, SOFT LINES, CURVES, STRUCTURE
I decided to use white leather like material, raw cut, structured sleeves. Flaps of soft leather hanging on the body rather than being stiff and unpleasant to touch.
