POW is inspired by the Pop art movement, taking aspects of mass culture and challenging tradition. Explored in a modern context, a reaction to rapidly growing consumerism and social media frenzy.
Referencing the imagery of Sigmar Polke and Roy Liechtenstein poignant female subjects that both objectified and honored at the same time.
A secondary reference for the collection is the color and intricate geometric patterns of African Shweshwe fabric. Paying homage to the traditional Sotho clothing and acknowledging the vital role that Africa has on Candice Wyatt-Minter hair design inspiration.
