This mini collection made my heart very happy and I had to share it.
My semester was challenging, but I feel very proud of how much I've grown (design-wise) over the years; I was definitely not as confident as I am now with sewing garments, so creating these pieces made this gal REALLY happy.
Despite this season of unrest, loss and pain,
I experienced many moments that lead to ‘Liberation’
Peace of Mind, despite everything going on around me
As a black woman in America
The symbol “fawohodie” which means Freedom,
has become my favorite Adinkra symbol because it symbolizes hope
and possibilities of exactly that.
This collection is aimed at making women feel bold
and aware of who they are.
Looking in the mirror
and seeing a reflection
of peace, and joy within!
With our classes being virtual, I decided to create a fashion film to present the looks. A two minute long video, shot in a greenhouse to represent the concept of
'thriving in a contained environment'.
