Wardrobe Overhaul : A feminist statement

BY RUBY BOUSSARD
@ VOL 20 ON APR 19, 2017

Ruby Boussard is a visual artist and a recycle nut.  Ruby promotes awareness of waste in our environment through her art and by running recycled craft workshops for adults and children.  Ruby is fascinated by three dimensional construction techniques and how diverse materials can be made wearable.  Here Ruby sets herself the challenge of redesigning/recycling her entire wardrobe.  The resulting portfolio of photographs is a feminist statement about reclaiming the female image from a women’s point of view.  Spoiler alert – this has nothing to do with make-up, styling or air-brushing, and everything to do with feeling happy in your own skin.

Through his story and others, Bashir explains the importance of learning and celebrating this history in order to understand contemporary racism and why groups such as Black Lives Matter are relevant now more than ever.
