Let'em Eat Cake!
Let them eat Cake! Is a collection of work that started with the creation of headwear inspired by cupcakes. The inclusion of the historical figure Marie Antoinette began with the desire to express editorial imagery that not only enhance the headwear, but also offer similar desires to work collaboratively to combine both art and fashion within a curatorial process.
Within art and fashion, as an artist I am interested in second hand materials, that when arranged can offer an array of inventive textures and newly created values that include social, monetarism, and aesthetic. Pushing beyond the fantasy fascination about the French lifestyle of Marie Antoinette, I look to explore the idea of perception that can lead to rethinking both historically and materialistically.
