Brunch as a Thesis Idea

Brunch is frivolous in nature. Some people love to say they hate the whole idea of it. I've always enjoyed brunch. An excuse to dress up, pretend, gather, perform, and spend too much money. During the pandemic, the idea of brunch seemed so distant, so did gathering, and mostly, so did joy.
This collection is about something so ridiculous at its core, but also a pasttime that has gripped society in such a way that it must mean something. Both a parody and in honor of the characters that attend brunch, I hope this collection can bring joy to its viewers and celebrate togetherness, no matter how superficial.


My thesis is both a collection and a short film, which is linked at the bottom of this page. Watch these characters come to life.

In Depth Design Process

Below is a more comprehensive series of steps taken to create my collection. It includes exploring food, table, environment, and character.
The following research focuses on grapes, napkins, eggs, gingham and smocking, etc. Very serious business.

Thank you for visiting my page!
