The inspiration for my tuxedo was the melding of the Roaring 1920s, and our young, but already quite eventful 2020. My tuxedo utilizes many patterns and textures which consisted of 13 different Duck Tape designs and 18 rolls of Duck Tape. The leopard print and roaring tiger represent the ‘Roaring’ 20s, and also add a more modern flair. The pocket watch was a popular accessory in the 1920s, however, my inspiration was based on a very modern luxury watch from a current high-end designer. There are many parallels between the 20s of the previous century, and the world we live in today. Immigration was under scrutiny in the 1920s, and racism was escalating. While many believe we have come so far in the past century, we have proven we have a long way to go. I am hopeful that the devastating events of 2020 will result in a time of deep reflection and monumental change. I am optimistic this will be the best ‘Duck-ade’ yet.
