ABOUT THE COLLECTION
"BIPOLAR BUTTERFLY" BY SHAMIR
After my bipolar diagnosis my mother had called me "Butterfly" for the first time.
My mental health journey has been deeply filtered through the butterfly iconography, which has been a source of comfort and stability in this unique (but not broken) life I live. The designs from this collection are directly inspired by the navigation of my mental health journey while living in the concrete jungle of South Philadelphia.
My goal with this collection is to further dismantle the stigma around mental illness, something I’ve dedicated my life and career to doing.
