I miss this
Just so heart breaking
Everything about this is garbage
I kno so many men that are like this in real life. Be weary like this shit is disgusting we need to kill off all of them
niggas in new jersey are like this and they’re literally scum of the earth
HILARY & DENISE for THE EYEMUSE PROJECT:
Dre Ngozi and Jade Lee-Hoy are Hilary & Denise (inspired by the characters Hilary Banks of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Denise Huxtable of The Cosby Show), a vintage and pre-loved clothing line.
"The collection is a fusion of styles, something which their own personal style embodies very much; they describe their dress sense as “Bohemian, structured yet wild” and are often very much inspired by ancestral roots, referring their intricately mixed backgrounds for their ability to incorporate unique traditional and cultural pieces into their style."
Whilst they lived together, they started to think about issues of identity within all women of colour, having friends also from all different backgrounds. They started to create “The Froback Diaries”, a web-based set of documentaries about the politics of the afro, and what the challenges of being in one’s natural state in today’s society entails, as a woman.
In a way, they see the way they project themselves as controversial; if one sports a huge afro, so big that it takes up space wherever it goes, what message does that send across? or traditional, cultural head wear or clothing, such as a Dashiki, in a setting unfamiliar to that? They started to create discussions, mainly within the perspectives of women of the African and Caribbean Diaspora in order to create content for their web-series as well as formulate a community, and hope to spread and evolve their message even further to all.
