Artist Phyllis Ma created these sculptures of ridiculously oversized men’s garments for a whimsical exhibition called ready-to-wear.

ready-to-wear includes iconic male clothing items scaled for an imaginary giant, a series of silk shirts which have been tie-dyed by flame, and a transparent tarp adorned with symbols of food.

Guests to the one-night exhibition interacted with each other in a house party atmosphere amongst an enormous men’s shirt and underpants, which undoubtedly made for some stimulating conversation.
