Fred Moten once said “The object of Black Studies is the critique of Wester civilisation. The aim of Black Studies is Blackness.”

Fashion, Blackness, beauty, mindless politics and a fragile culture of images. For months I tried to find the perfect balance between these ideas in order to create an undeniable visual statement. A photograph. And right in the middle, the Black Figure wearing their hoods of fear and ignorance as her heaviest fur dress.
