UNFUrl is a video collaboration between the designer chenert and via film and transmedia school in Aarhus. unfurl is taking you through the three different design universes inside the designer's head and showcasing the different phases of growing up as a queer artist in a strict society. From darkness to 'dream' the story tells you how the clothes we put on protect us and give us the power to go through life. Most of the clothes done by CHENERT are made by using leftover materials, production waste, or recycled fabrics. All of the garments are non-seasonal and gender-neutral, so the clothes will fit anyone who desires to wear them.

The first phase/ Darkness
THE DARKNESS IS INSPIRED BY THE DEPRESSION AND DARK TIMES QUEER PEOPLE ARE USUALLY GOING THROUGH GROWING UP. IT IS THE PHASE WHERE EVERYTHING SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE AND TOO HARD TO MOVE ON, CARRYING ALL THE SECRETS IN YOUR OWN HEAD, WHILE FEELING THAT YOU HAVE NO ONE TO TRUST. BUT THAT IS ALSO DESCRIBING THE WILLPOWER TO PUSH THROUGH THOSE DIFFICULT TIMES AND FIND A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS.
The second phase/ acceptance
THE SECOND PHASE -ACCEPTANCE- IS INSPIRED BY THE FINAL ACCEPTANCE OF ONE’S SEXUALITY AND EXPLORING THE NEW BIG AND COLORFUL WORLD. IT IS THE PHASE WHERE ONE IS DOING ALL THE MISTAKES POSSIBLE, BUT LIVING THE LIFE THEY MISSED OUT ON WHILE LIVING UNDER THE PRESSURE AND SCARE. IT IS THE PHASE OF LEARNING, GROWING, AND MAKING THE MOST OUT OF ONE’S MISTAKES.
The third phase/ growing
GROWING IS THE LAST PHASE IN THIS COLLECTION. IT IS THE FINAL STEP OF OVERCOMING WHAT YOU HAVE HIDDEN ALL THOSE YEARS AND WHAT HAS ACTUALLY BEEN TRUE UNDER ALL THOSE LAYERS. IT IS THE PHASE OF UNPICKING ALL THE PROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES YOU HAVE GROWN INTO ANF TRYING TO SEPARATE THE TRUE SELF FROM ALL THE TROUBLE. IT IS THE STEP THAT IS LETTING YOU GROW, REALISE, ANALYSE, AND HOPEFULLY, ONE DAY FIND YOUR TRUE SELF OR MAYBE NOT, BUT AT LEAST YOU ARE GROWING.
