'Will I be dress coded for these?' by Fariha Ahmed

Earrings  /  Ornamental   OnBody
 
As a second-generation diaspora, Fariha’s collection is an investigation into her Bangladeshi and British cultural influences on her upbringing. The earrings draw on memories of wearing ultra-large hoop earrings in a South London high school and embracing Bangladeshi traditions like wearing henna. Fariha has hidden letters and words within the henna work to represent seeing her mother tongue as an unreadable pattern, a feeling that a lot of second-generation diasporas can relate to.
