BPR at Zulema's Show

Zulema's Show "Fela's Wives" began at 6:00. Fela was an African musician (and much more) who married twenty-seven women in a single ceremony in 1978. You can read more about him here. Zulema created 27 designs for this show.

It was especially nice to speak with Zulema's partner, Sherie, while we were waiting for the show to begin. She told me with pride that Zulema created each and every look and even dyed some of the fabrics herself.

This show was an "Installation." The models posed in a vignette while they danced, played the guitar, sorted beans, ironed clothes, etc. It was very unique and certainly colorful as you can see.
