PLASMA: Ceremonial Cape 

[2019]

silk flowers, plastic foliage, chain, faceted beads, feathers, mesh, chiffon

 

This ornate ceremonial cape was one of several worn by nomadic priestesses. They performed ecstatic nightclub rituals, honoring the Divine Femme. These queer ancestors adorned themselves in flowers as a symbol of gender fluidity. Flowers in nightlife fashion came to represent the spiritual power acquired through inner an outer sublimation of polarity.
