According to Jungian psychology there are 7 feminine archetypes that prevail in contemporary society today – the mother, the maiden, the queen, the huntress, the wise woman, sage and the lover. The presence of these archetypes account for the major differences among women.  
Award winning milliner and designer Melanie Jeffers in collaboration with choreographer Melissa Lanham present Femininus (Latin for feminine); a unique and hybrid exhibition of the seven archetypes of the feminine form. The project will feature three main components; an opening night with a performance, exhibition and workshops.
