For International Women's Day, we're thrilled to launch a collection of independently designed prints for the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign.
This year, to celebrate International Women's Day, we launched an exciting initiative for young artists to get involved in. Moreover, in collaboration with The Prince's Trust Charity, we invited young female artists to create a piece of artwork for the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign. As such, with women supporting women being so important to us at Rockett St George, we were thrilled to pick six amazing artists to be a part of this collection. In this blog, we detail Natasha's spectacular Challenge The Conventions Art Print and what inspired her to create it. Finally, see below to find out more about this gorgeous piece of art and exactly why you need one!
26-year-old Natasha Muluswela is a Zimbabwean born artist living in the United Kingdom. Different cultures and people have always had an integral influence on her life. As such, this translates into her art. Focusing on the important theme of body positivity and what it means to be uniquely beautiful, Natasha creates incredible pieces of art that encapsulate this. Moreover, in the face of society’s unrealistic beauty standards, Natasha's creations celebrate the diversity of the female body. This is a sight that she wished to have seen whilst she was growing up.
Natasha's Design Inspiration
Natasha’s piece Challenge The Conventions questions and confronts what society deems to be beautiful. She explores inspirations that range from vitiligo, to stretch marks and ageism. In some parts of the world, these conditions are seen as shameful or have stigma tied to them, so with an aim to normalise bodily differences, Natasha concentrates on how these unique markings made by nature are instead a true and beautiful part of human existence. Natasha’s illustrated artwork depicts how as human beings, we are all different and have unique attributes that should be embraced. In a world where society can deem imperfections as different, Natasha expresses how these features are a cause for empowerment.

Why Support The Prince's Trust x Rockett St George Campaign?
The Prince’s Trust helps young people all over the UK to build their confidence and skills by supporting them into jobs, education and training. On top of this, their research has found that more than half (57%) of young women said they have lost confidence in themselves as a result of the pandemic. As such, a quatre of young women (25%) feel like they are going to fail in life, compared to 19% of young men. In response to this, The Prince’s Trust Women Supporting Women initiative helps address the challenges young women face. Moreover, Rockett St George is incredibly proud to support the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign. Even better, the funds raised will help to bring hope and opportunity to young women who have lost confidence in their future, whilst also raising profile and awareness of six talented young female artists.
