"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.

Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”
