Together For Peace

I made this Kimono robe whilst dedicating the piece of art to International World Peace Day. 
I have individually illustrated and hand painted all 195 countries’ flags on stretched canvas with all my love and respect.
This is probably the first time in the history of dress making or in any form of art where all the flags of the countries had been hand painted and sewn together using both hand and machine. The handmade nature of this piece is one significant reason why I titled the work “Together For Peace”.

Pointing out our differences will not fix our broken world, love and togetherness will. - Basana

Fashion is the mirror of a society. 
Fashion secretly tells you all about it, you just have to listen to understand…..
