This relevant issue is often neglected or simplified, not only in the realm of art and design but in society as a whole. This is why it was important for Abigail to shed a light on something so imminent in today’s society. Basing her collection on trapped emotions, her visual inspiration came from mental institutions. Using an abundance of eyelets in both garments and shoes, she referenced belts and straps used to restrict patients, which were also seen on the beds of institutions.

The balance between aestheticism and mindfulness/sensitivity became key in constructing her designs.
