Bobo Choses’ Autumn/Winter 2019-20 collection looks at the story of Benny Benson, the 13-year-old Chignik boy who entered a contest for designing the flag for the Territory of Alaska in 1927. He looked to the sky for inspiration, choosing the familiar constellation he looked for every night before going to sleep at the orphanage. Benny’s design was chosen over 700 other submissions to represent the future of the Alaska Territory to the present days.
Like Benny did once, we also looked up to the sky to discover that there’s a flag that links to all of us, the Universe.
Dedicated to all those kids who know we are all made of stars.
