"Underpinning the artist's work is an engagement with the themes of time: of history and its legacy for future generations, of how we live in the present, and of cycles or patterns that repeat across time despite their often destructive consequences." (Kent, Yinka Shonibare MBE, 2008, p.7.)

Using vibrant Dutch wax cotton and historical references chosen by Yinka, we create these intricate period costumes, each one completely unique and telling its own story.
