What would you like your last outfit to be?

In an attempt to spur discussions on end-of-life care in carefully manicured Singapore, the Lien Foundation funded and supported the Life Before Death initiative, to create greater awareness on our mortality. 

The foundation had many projects, but one that I found cheeky and able to provoke participants' positive energy on this taboo topic is Last Outfit. As part of the programme, participants chose their last outfit and had themselves photographed by a team of journalists.

One participant  was Claudio Soares de Morais. A capoeira instructor, he chose his white copaeira as his last. He chose his best moments to be remembered by.  

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

You can plan your death and your last outfit! Why not start thinking about it now than let someone else decide your last image to be remembered by and outfit?
