Standing Room Only
The high density of New York City pushes its population together while the city’s ever widening wealth gap pulls them apart. Counteracting this tension is the great unifier: public transportation. On each piece in this collection, ‘Wall Street’ is hand printed in the same size and format as the station’s subway sign. Printing this charged phrase onto workwear uniforms forces the ideas of “white collar’ and ‘blue collar’ to reckon with one another. This collection focuses on a city that may come together rather than divide.
