Qualeasha Wood Among Artists Chosen to Create Custom Designed Trunk For Louis Vuitton's 200th Birthday
Qualeahsa Wood (Photography ’21) has created a custom trunk for a special display honoring fashion designer Louis Vuitton’s 200th birthday. 200 artists and designers were selected to create custom trunks to be displayed in Louis Vuitton’s 460 storefronts. Trunks are significant to Mr. Vuitton’s legacy, the pieces upon which he founded the company in Paris in 1854.
Vuitton will release a book chronicling the collaboration, as well as exhibit the physical trunks for 100 days starting August 4th, 2021, and hold a charity auction with Sotheby’s.
Wood’s custom trunk is covered in a tapestry created from a digital collage.
