The story begins at the place and time where our contemporary world has ended. It could be considered as a moment of dark humor in a post apocalyptic state. After consumption has ended the lives that we once knew, it is at this point that we become products of abandoned spaces, recycled armor, and archived wardrobes. It is also at this point that we introduce, Mr. and Mrs. Bugg. A short narrative of such an example. Beginning in reality and ending in a dream. (Adia Trischler)

ANDREA CAMMAROSANO / BURY ME STANDING (2009) Andrea Cammarosano takes funeral rites and submarines as the starting point for his collection. with his perception of garments as coffins forming the link between the two, He designs utopian coverings to protect the body using technical shapes and materials. Andrea often uses fashion as a way to examine the dynamics of human society. he says: “three things make us human: identity, knowledge and hope”. in bury me standing, the use of military uniforms (identity), of funeral references as an outproduct of social culture (knowledge) and the belief in burial as a door to after-life (hope) symbolize these cardinal concepts.
