The Rafia collection is a visual conversation about the role of perspective.
The designing process began days after being laid off from my corporate job. For days, I sat and wondered whether the situation I had been placed in was one that would cage me, or grow me.
In its representation, the collection is broken into two perspectives, the nest and the cage playing with elements of fluid weaving techniques or structured cage like elements.
They may take different paths, but the foundation and raw materials are the same, RAFIA.
