Street Style: Athi-Patra Ruga’s Queens In Exile exhibition

Athi-Patra’s latest body of work, Queens in exile, highlights the issues of identity and belonging through mythical worlds and we were there to capture all the street style glory!

Athi’s work consists of worlds created through large-scale tapestries and multimedia as well as an allegorical critique of South Africa’s political and social landscape so that the exiled characters within the art can reign. The exhibition took fours years to come to life and on the 29th of November, What if The World Gallery, in Cape Town, opened its doors and three floors for the public to engage with the otherworldly Queens In Exile.

In the same way that Athi works take us to different worlds, fashionable visitors spotted at the exhibition, took us to other worlds with their stylish outfits.
