Why Your Nani is the Ultimate #SustainableFashion Influencer

(2020)

Here’s some collage work I did recently, bringing some imagery to Kinita Shenoy's  article titled-  “Why Your Nani Is The Ultimate Sustainable Fashion Influencer” for

The Citizen, India. 

This artwork was also featured by the Remember Who Made Them collective, who are a group of concerned feminists with networks in philanthropy, climate activism, the arts and sustainable fashion.

Kinita’s piece champions the South Asian culture of up-cycling clothes and traditional hand me downs, I tried to echo that very spirit through the aesthetic of a ‘hand cut’ vintage family collage that is bold, colourful and characteristic - just like the amazing women in it. The hand drawn stitches act as embroidered embellishments that are a callback to the relentless work of garment factory workers who’s stories need to come to the forefront now.
