Soft Power is a shirt designed for the dancer Hortense to wear in ON DISPLAY, a dance performance in which able-bodied dancers and dancers with disabilities take statue-like poses that show off their wearable artwork. The goal for the "soft" triangles is to convey that though Hortense‚Äôs background in Taekwondo can be intimidating, she is still very gentle and sweet. The triangles are made out of felt and are sewn into 3D shapes to visually represent her opposing sides of her personality. The angular  the triangles go in a fluid zigzag direction so it cover more of her body. Adjustable straps where also added to let other dancers wear the wearable.
