In my culture, black is an everyday colour for women when they are outside the home or in other people's houses, whether they are at a wedding party or just doing their shopping. Women also used to wear a long, wide piece of black on top of their clothes to cover what was underneath, because they were not allowed to show any part of their clothing to others. So, black is a color that shows and hides our color. It is not the only colour we wear. I want to show all of the bright colours we wear.
