How have you struggled with how to dress? Have you had to adapt or change yourself in order to fit in? Has what you wear ever made you feel rejected or alone? How did that experience make you feel? How did your body feel and react? Centring the Vomit is a decolonial project that contains a handbook, a series of workshops-Aesthesis ≩ Aesthetic and sensory documentation. Together, this project aims to provide people, especially fashion students, with a self-organised education method that will help to raise awareness of the dominant Eurocentric perspective. As well as offering the audiences a guide on how to approach decolonial ways of design. It is set out to offer a decolonial approach to challenge the cultural hierarchy in fashion design education. Adopting a feminist sensory orientation and an anti-capital feminist approach that both emphasise the role of lived and embodied experiences, I reorient aesthetics to a personal one and encourage a better understanding of common differences. A feminist self-organised educational method not only stimulates consciousness and encourages building solidarity among fashion students but also calls for attention and response from fashion institutions.
