The link between a person and a garment can never be planned for, but has lasting impact when a garment becomes a life-long companion. It reveals the potential for change in each individual and often marks that in the associations with a piece, for single, small actions can have big effects.
"These pants, I mean, if you look at them they’re a little bit outdated.
I’m from Eastern Europe so we used to always shop at second-hand

in great condition. I didn’t bring many clothes with me to America… but
they made it."
