Vakwangali Fashion Collection
I am Maria Caley. My Vakwangali Fashion Collection was created through a practice led approach. Information was obtained from interviews and by looking at photographs and objects in local archives and museums. This process of sifting through information from different sources was vital for a better understanding of Vakwangali traditional clothing.
I uncovered stories that helped me understand the value and meaning embedded in Vakwangali traditional clothing. Each garment in the Vakwangali Fashion Collection was made up of a character derived from the narratives gathered through interviews, which I consolidated with photographs and artefacts I observed regarding Vakwangali traditional clothing.
