From Lepsoe’s interview, I gathered that Cathy’s journey into bilum weaving and into Bilum Wear was inspired in 2000 by an article of a PNG fashion designer “…who had created a garment with a piece of bilum attached to the pocket.” I am still wondering who wrote that article that woke up the artisitc and entreprenuerial giant in Cathy.
I have a few guesses but will keep them to myself lest I am wrong. Cathy learned bilum weaving or looping from the tender age of 5.
When I received Dr Mel’s invitation (co-curator of the international exhibition) to the the ‘Hailans to Ailans’ show in London, I was really happy and delighted that I would be meeting the creator of bilum dresses made entirely in PNG.
I remember reading about her but couldn’t remember when and where.
I recently had the pleasure of seeing photos of PNG women wearing Bilum Wear in PNG and Australia and as faraway as the USA via Facebook albums, PNG and PNG-related blogs as well as on Google. Check out a number of blogsites given at the end of this post for more information on Bilum Wear.
