MANIFESTO is an afterlife collection in its purest form.
What would you wear on your last day that could empower your beauty and free your soul at the same time? The transition to the afterlife is one that history has told us is as important as life itself.
MANIFESTO is a sustainable collection of unique dresses handmade from antique embroideries, vintage laces, and organic fabrics—that thereby get second lives—a symbolic collection of life lived and the heights of freedom achieved.
The seven minute long short film ‘Afterlife’ is a creative collaboration between Ann Wiberg and film director Christina Amundsen of Knockknock, produced for WELUM to celebrate the launch of the collection. It depicts departure through the eyes of Ann Wiberg. The story is about being a part of everything in nature and growing your soul into a tree. It is a moment of gratitude – it is the last dress – the last day – your last manifesto.
