GARDEN PARTY

The GARDEN PARTY collection is inspired by a photograph of a Zulu chief
posing with his wife in the early 1900s. I found this picture in a magazine
and I was immediately drawn to the chief’s wife. I imagined the sort of life
she would lead as a chief’s wife in today’s modern world. I imagine she
would fill her days with leisurely activities and created a fictional garden
party she would be having with her friends. I used her dress as the
foundation for the collection as well as the Zulu shield to symbolize her
royalty.
