We asked Brenda to share her 'bucket list concept'—the creative vision that she hopes to one day bring to life...

Age of the Cyborg

I'm envisioning a futuristic dystopian cyborg world! The model will have cyborg body parts and be suspended in the air by wires/tubes, within the Large Hadron Collider.

There's been so many campaigns and shoots in the fashion industry championing sustainability and going green for the future, and that's a really good thing, but I want to see it from a different point of view. I want to create something a bit more drastic.

This concept is essentially about how, with such relentless technological advancements, we're fast approaching a dystopian future where humans will want to switch out organic body parts with stronger, faster and better robot counterparts.
