The New Archipelago

by Daisy Silva, fashion graduate

As a designer I have always been interested in finding connections between different cultures and continents. This subconscious ambition derives from my own cultural heritage, the Cape Verdean islands, which is a mixed culture from both African and Portuguese, European, descent due to its history. Having parents from Cape Verdean descent whilst being born and raised in the Netherlands, I have always felt in between two worlds, two cultures. Therefore, I always search for a connection between them.
