Minawe

The collection is titled, MINAMI/MINAWE which is the abbreviation of the Swahili phrases, Mimi na Mimi (I and I), and Mimi na Wewe (I and You). It centers around the idea of love and how we interact with it in various relationships exploring themes of dependency/loss-of-self in love; Discovery/Growth of self with love; and Solitude/Holistic self-love.

The main colour of the collection was inspired by the rose quartz crystal which symbolizes love. The finishing to be both messy and beautiful, much like how love can sometimes be. In conclusion the collection is an artistic reflection of the journey one takes in learning about themselves through the eyes of another and if they are lucky they find their own voice and embrace it.
