Adelaide House Collection #AW19 #LFWM
Mopesola wears recycled tent jacket, screen printed in Peckham.
Working in collaboration with Adelaide House, a women’s shelter based in Liverpool, one of only six such facilities in the country. Adelaide House provides a safe place for women leaving prison with various needs including domestic violence and homelessness. I have also worked alongside @giorgiachiarion , who has illustrated the women of Adelaide House and created abstract paintings inspired by Liverpool’s landscape.
Liverpool was the first city in the UK to have social housing. The city forms inspiration for the collection, as well as the number of female, socially engaged politicians that have helped support their community. In an interesting twist on the ongoing discourse around gender, when a man buys a piece from this collection, the proceeds go to supporting some of society’s most vulnerable women. To support Adelaide House, I will be donating 20% of the profits from this collection.
