Outift by Clive Rundle (Museum Accession Number R6090/1-3)

This leather outfit was part of Clive Rundle’s collection entitled AFRIDESIA, originally presented at the New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in 2003. Each piece is a complex construction involving intricate processes. While his work has a sculptural quality, Rundle says it is the discipline of making garments to be worn on the body that motivates him. Collected as part of the Fashioning Africa project.
