Mood Board “Like any war, we lived in fear.” Fabric swatches relating to the Zimbabwean theme. Handmade swatches made by my own interpretation of Zimbabwe and its current state. Colour scheme following the national colours of Zimbabwe and the flag. #ThisFlag by Pastor Evan Mawarire inspired this look. #ThisFlag I wanted to focus on the irony of president Mugabe banning the flag by making a pattern of his famous portrait in the flag’s colours. Colocasia inspired by the fact that people turned to their own agriculture to support themselves. The government began to takeover farms. Grace Mugabe recently claimed the Mazowe Valley, a source of Zimbabwe’s most famous drink. Healthcare is not accessible to a majority of the country. These platform shoes were a solution to a common cause of an illness.
