Belt and Road Collection
The Belt and Road Initiative is an opportunity for cultures to connect in order to trade their knowledge as well as their goods. For this capsule collection our inspiration is the theme of multiculturalism, since there are more than 65 countries that form part of the Belt and Road Initiative.
In the first collection launched under the brand “Veronica Angel” we created a dress using Polaroid photographs of the indigenous Guna group that live in areas of Panama. In this occasion we want to integrate the different cultures that form part of in the Belt and Road Initiative. We are very lucky to have Asian European, African and Middle East cultures present in Panama, making it a culturally diverse country湖南福彩网app官方下载. Our aim is to take different pictures around Panama City where these different cultures are present. We will take pictures of their food, textiles, people, art, and crafts to create a unique and multicultural textile print and fabric.
