On Wednesday 29th of May at  the dim light Saint Judes venue, the creative minds at Mimosa Life unveiled the first two installments of their Limited Xcelsior Apparel Line  – Amelia and Horus. Both pieces  received mass praise and acclaim from  guests that attended the Xcelsior Launch on that day.  Notably, those in attendance were enamoured by the moody hand drawn illustrations screen printed onto a vintage, grungy  tee shirt  in hues of gold and yellow.

The black swan inspired illustration ‘Amelia’  explained by Creative director of the Xcelsior Project was symbolic of ‘the dedication and perseverance needed to master a craft or art form….even as elegant as ballet.’

Importantly, the creative director of the project explained that  the  ‘Horus’  piece is a juxtaposition  that draws from  eastern religions specifically the ‘Third eye’a state of higher consciousness and Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics ‘Eye of Horus’ which means ‘ sacrifice, royalty and protection.

Lastly, He stressed that the Xcelsior line ‘ from the outset these pieces may appear as a moody, dark and haunting  but its symbolism and hidden meanings are representative of the struggles and daunting experience it takes to achieve one’s dream.’

Below are some of the  photos of the event at large which featured Belfast born  folk/jazz singer songwriter Bronagh Monahan as the supporting act and Hip Hop Turntablist  Lil L as the headliner enjoy!
