Fashion Open Studio X Cecily Ophelia at 'House of Bandits'!


December 4th, 12:00AM - 15:00PM

Bringing Sarabande to the artistic forefront, the Sarabande pop-up store 'House of Bandits' will serve as the central hub for Sarabande artists for 3 glorious months. The store and gallery space will sell work by a range of the 100 artists and designers that the Foundation has supported to date. The name itself was created by Foundation ambassador, journalist Tim Blanks who coined the term ‘Sarabandits’ for the Foundation’s ‘renegade’ alumni.

Join Cecily Ophelia at House of Bandits for the screening of a short film exploring her practice and craft community in Kampala, Uganda.

Cecily will be at House of Bandits to discuss the film and share her special insight into the making processes behind her meticulously hand-crafted pieces. The designer will also be demonstrating the beading techniques that go into making her latest Molly bag, which is beaded with approximately 1,130 'Mabona' seeds and the same number of watermelon seeds. Cecily’s bags are made in collaboration with Kanyoyga Mums, an incredible group of craftswomen based in the Kanyogoga district of Kampala, Uganda, who do all the beadwork for the CECILY X KAMUMS pieces.

Cecily's collection of beaded bags and hats will be available for purchase at House of Bandits. So what are you waiting for? The Christmas season is approaching- a gift in-hand along with a charitable act- sounds like the perfect combo!
