Textile and Fashion Design for
For the 2017 Fall/Winter collection with a concept already in place I worked on the fashion design and graphics focusing mainly on the women’s collection. Daily Paper’s quest for FW17 was to explore the concept of stealth and survival through the eyes of African youth.
“The South African youth has a unique culture and lifestyle that is constantly challenged. Despite their adverse circumstances, they have learned to adapt with the radical disruptions to their societies and pursue to migrate to the inner city and create a new world for themselves through sartorial elegance, style and grace. Ingenuity is the name of the game and being noticed is the main prize. The children of the city are all about find- ing and expressing their own unique identity and sharing this with the rest of the world.”
