Description

Amma's Chaos & Order is a way to retell the story of the religion/culture of the Ancient Egyptian descendants, the Dogon people from the Republic of Mali. The people have a keen knowledge of astronomy and have a deep connection with the star Sirius. According to the story, Amma, the supreme God is the origin of all mankind and he lived among the celestial skies. Amma created the world by splitting itself into two sections: Ogo embodying chaos and Nommo embodying order. This garment interpreted the body of Amma with a bold digital print of the Seagull nebula and Sirius on rayon challis in shades of magenta, teals and blues. Ogo-chaos was created mostly from bias-cut strips of shabori-dyed challis and hand-knitted pieces. Nommo was created in a navy batik hieroglyphics pattern which was sewn with crisp vertical pleats.
