OSMAN YOUSEFZADA’s film ‘Her Dreams are Bigger'

OSMAN YOUSEFZADA’s film ‘Her Dreams are Bigger'
In Osman’s words, the short film was developed from a trip to Bangladesh where he ‘showed a suitcase full of clothing carrying the label ‘Made in Bangladesh’. These discarded clothes were bought at charity shops in England, to women who worked in the industry. They sat in a circle and started to try on various pieces, taking selfies of each other and posing. 

The women who make clothes don’t really know who they are making them for. They don’t wear those kinds of clothes, clothes that are put on ships and then off-loaded halfway around the world to wind up in high street stores. That’s fast fashion.’

Osman works at the intersection of art and fashion, combining his multi-disciplinary design practice with a strong sense of social commentary. His work is shaped by a personal consideration of the contemporary fashion world and the industry’s inherent inequalities, juxtaposed with representations associated with the experience of immigration.
