Heni, Stiaan Louw and, one of my new favs, Laduma Ngxokolo were invited to showcase spring/summer collections at London Fashion Week and this is the result:
So different, yet so similar - AMAZE-BALLS!! Absolutely love the African influences - an African tale well told!
Stiaan kept the Normadic collection aesthetic (Joburg Fashion Week 2011) and added more vibrant colours for a fresh summer feel while Laduma tweaked his familiar Xhosa-inspired knitwear looks for an "urban warrior" feel, exaggerated by the DeGorge accessories - truly amazing!
I also adore the Missibaba and Ida Elsje accessories that accompanied the collections... what's not to like about a bone, a stone and fabric-covered tubes (very Masai) around anyone's neck?
Well done boys!
