GrandMa's Rose Bush
Matrons of Honor
Grandma’s Rose Bush
Headdress is sacred in some cultures. Worn during battle, it is still used for protection today, whether against elements or injury. Headdress is an expression of culture, identity, and often status.
My grandmother always had rose bushes in her garden. I played in them whenever she let me outside when I was a child. I never bothered about the thorns and I still love sitting in flowers.
Both of my grandmothers were known for their unique style, and incidently they both made clothes for thier children, ran businesses and the house hold.
My American grandmother had a revered hat collection, having traveled to France, Japan and England in the 1950's her fcollections were full of speality pieces from her travels. My Nigerian grandmother on the other hand was known for her regal head wraps that indicated her status as a matron and "Lolo" Wife of a chief.
I was inspired to create these floral headresses and shoes, in honor of my grandmothers and thier favorite accessory. Everything we do comes from somewhere. I get it from my Mama and her Mamas, Mama, Mama's Mama...
