Strangers & Candy: Where do you get your inspiration?
Rebecca: From traveling, working, exhibitions and nature. Last year I made a film about Yinka Shonibare, British Nigerian artist that involved researching West African trade routes. Fabric was of course extremely important during this time.
In Nairobi, Kenya I visited the African Heritage House, a treasure trove of inspiration. And my guilty pleasure, I’m addicted to Empire. Cookie’s wardrobe is fabulous! One of her jackets looked like it was inspired by Kuba Congolese cloth.
