Drums made of denim, leather, rabbit fur
"NDN Aunties" is a tribute to Auntie Culture: leather jackets, neon fur, and animal print stretched across drum frames. These drums, unplayable, much like the tough women they are inspired by, act as both tributes and self-portraits. Our aunties are also our mothers, who take care of us, our 'cool' moms. More often than not, our aunties are our first style icons, the loud aunties with the big laugh, who take us to the mall. This series is inspired by their timeless auntie style.
