De-Colonised Kimono

For this piece I chose to look into my own heritage, being from a formerly colonised nation, and surrounded by so many other people from nations that were colonised, I found a tacit common ground among us through conversation. By examining former British colonies I came up with 4 different fabrics that I felt unified the nations under their rule. My hope was that by wearing the Kimono the person would feel a sense of unity and freedom from a formerly repressed nation.
