When I found this Ken Done purse, I was determined to find out exactly who 'Yvonne' was.
You'll be pleased to know I've worked it out**.
The wonderful Ken Done signed his name a total of THREE times (!) when he gave this purse to South African Yvonne Chaka Chaka: also known as the Pop "Princess of Africa". And why did KD give the purse to her? Well he spotted her music video clip for her song "Let Him Go"... and it was the sheer amount of *outstanding* 1980s outfits that Ken felt needed congratulations and celebrations!
Phew, I'm glad I worked the story out, and how *wonderful* that the story too has so much relevance for What Ken Be Done? :-)
** When I say I worked out the story, what I really mean is I made up the story... but it would be wonderful if it were true, yes? And those 1980s outfits really did need some praise! If you can come up with a better 'Yvonne' story, I'd love to hear it! xo
