Episode 1: Athi Patra Ruga – Dior Lady Art #4


Yes! I designed
two bags, yeah. The first design. It is me thinking
about the Junon dress which has had such an impact
on my relationship with textiles really. I looked into the archive of it
and was like wow! Scalloping, scalloping,
scalloping, scalloping. So, it became this conversation of scallops, beads
and Lamay’s leathers. A scallop and a scallop. Our second design is inspired
by sculptural work whereby we do 3D scans
of my body and then attach
a lot of flowers onto me. I was thinking about how she,
or how they, will be holding
and feeling the textures ranging from fabric to crystal. It’s titillation for your hands. I’m a fiend for colours, because the subject could be tough,
in my work, or in the world. I find that colour has an ability
to open everyone’s heart up. It’ll open it to judgement
or open it to actual criticism.
