A new art collaboration with local artist Doriana Diaz in celebration of our homegirls.
Unisex. 100% Cotton
"This project is a representation of co-conspiratorship through visual storytelling. These collages, glimpses of someone you might remember represent the vastness found in kinship that allows us homegirls to indulge gently and gracefully into revolutions of care. Through placement and piecing these facets of womanhood together, there are memories being made, lives being lived, and love being felt. We are a representation of ourselves, of one another, of experience. Homegirls is a remembrance story of where we met and how we got soft again. Homegirls is a pledge to where our curves meet our hard-to-reach places, and how we reach anyway. Homegirls is an incantation of all that is holy and all that is messy in sweet alchemy. We were always here. We were always here. We were always here." - Doriana Diaz
