Gather by designer Kate James
The gather skirt is for an urban scavenger. It is made entirely of pockets created from gathers in the various fabric sections, and has magnets mounted on the bottom layers. As one wanders the urban landscape, the skirt collects metal scraps and remnants. These gathered metal bits are then sorted into the various pockets by size and type. The skirt is intended for use on sites of construction and destruction- places of flux that may be suggestive of a future urban state.
