This jumpsuit is made from an adire inspired fabric decorated with brightly coloured beadwork. Adire is is an indigo fabric from south western Nigeria that is traditionally hand dyed using various resist techniques to create patterns. This version of the fabric is machine printed. Eredappa Hart’s designs mix western silouettes with local print fabrics, such as adire, which are layered with luxurious bead embellishments to create stunning three dimensional pieces. Collected as part of the Fashioning Africa project.
