Adriana Degreas – Slave Dress

Adriana Degreas - Slave Dress

Fashion Designer Adriana Degreas displays this deeply racist image of a slave in her runway show.
This highly stylized garment pictures a Black woman with a device around her mouth.
This device was originally used with the intention of preventing slaves from eating the corn that they were picking.
In her runway show, it has been presented as a piece of jewelry, but has lost none of its potent racism.
