Ageing is a fact of life. People mature and gain experience while living their lives. Often you look back over years that have passed to evaluate the passing years and realise that your vision has changed in life. Your perception has changed and other things have become more important.Although getting wiser has its advantages, many people see ageing as something bad. After reaching a certain age it can only go downhill. Hairs become grey, vision decreases, age lines are becoming visible and your hearing deteriorates. This is seen as imperfection, but why? Why do we appreciate an aged wine, but despise our own ageing process?With this project I attempt to change this perception that people have of ageing. I demonstrate the effects of time, light and air on fabrics and how this changes the perception of the consumer. I show that there is beauty in ageing and, eventually, the consumer will realise that the ageing process of the fabric is unique in nature and is a sign of perfection.
