HURRY, ONLY 1 LEFT!
Dreams for a more luscious future.
Nia’s take - “This collection celebrates my hopes and dreams for a more luscious future where I can be in community with all of my loved ones from the past, present and future. Much like all of my work, at its core, the collection aims to display and celebrate Black bodies.”
Traditionally crafted in Portugal, this shirt is 100% plant-powered. Made from the elements, to be worn in the elements and ultimately returned to the elements. This is what a sustainable shirt should look and feel like.
Nia Musiba lives and eats and sleeps and goes to school and creates work and makes new friends in Portland. Her identity as an African-American woman and the daughter of a Tanzanian immigrant influence her work and her exploration of Blackness throughout history. Her creations are about queerness, about being human, about hands and bodies and feelings and connection and flowers and sunshine. She views her depictions of Black and brown bodies as a direct response to the hyper-sexualization, brutalization, and overall negative depictions of BiPoC individuals within art and media.
This collection celebrates daydreaming, community, growth and communication. It is inspired by my parents, by the connections I’ve made and growing I’ve done despite the pandemic, and by my hopes and dreams for a more luscious future where I can be in community with all of my loved ones from the past, present and future. Much like all of my work, at its core, the collection aims to display and celebrate Black bodies.
