Powerful Bodies: Zulu

On visiting this exhibit I was  inspired by these loin coverings and beaded panels I’m assuming the Zulu men use to wear. I love the colors and the geometric shapes that are being used. For my final project I have chosen to take this inspiration of the mens beaded panels into creating a modern day women’s wear look incorporating the idea of adornment and of accentuating the “zones of power”.
