Starshine and Clay Tee

The Starshine and Clay Tee is named for the Lucille Clifton poem: “won't you celebrate with me”. The photograph used was originally published in National Geographic Magazine, Vol 42, October 1922. The original caption in French read “Bassa Belles en Fete” which roughly translates to “Bassa Beauties in Ceremonial Wear”.

About the Ancestor Collection

The Ancestor Collection is Denisio Truitt’s latest work that seeks to recontextualize elements of her West-African heritage thru the vehicle of contemporary fashion. This exploration is evident in her Dan Mask and West-African Fetish Series. Here the artist utilizes early 20th century photographs of indigenous West-African peoples and places them within a modern framework as a means of honoring the bridge between past and present.
