Abstract

The inspiration behind this piece came from a bandolier, which is a shoulder belt that is used to hold cartridges for ammunition. The designer intentionally paired this overtly masculine detailing with a similarly overtly feminine styling. This juxtaposition is a statement on the rugged capability of women to fight back against oppression. This piece Bandelier Mini fits within the larger context of the designer’s work, which seeks to express female worth and empowerment.

Keywords: Female Empowerment, Autonomy, Strength
