Textile collection 'Red Thread' by Putri Adif studies female sexuality and genital mutilation


Putri Adif’s first textile collection, Red Thread, was recently presented at Why Not – housed at The Substation for one night. The performance, depicting goriness and frustrations surrounding female genital mutilation (FGM), paid homage to the designer’s Malay culture. The presentation opened with Getaran Jiwa by Malaysian composer P. Ramlee – a somewhat festive song laced with deep sadness, conveying the revelations of FGM based on the takeaways from the designer’s personal experience and research.
