Selly Djap’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection, Trauma, embodies the struggle of childhood trauma and the transition into recovery through early adulthood. Based on the life of the designer, and taking inspiration from popular culture, the women’s movements of the early 20th Century, and the recent movements of #metoo and #whyiwearblack, the FW18 collection is a cathartic creation that aims to empower other women and remind everyone that through trauma, one is never alone, and healing is possible through Grace, in the form of forgiveness. The collection of 9 outfits illustrates the experience of trauma, from being unaware of the abuse taking place, fighting back against the perpetrator, hiding the abuse from oneself, to finally experiencing post growth and healing. The FW18 collection will be showcased during fashion week in New York City at Sunset Terrace in Chelsea Piers on February 16th.
