The line will remain faithful to its signature reflection of rural African dress–featuring wrapped, knotted and draped pieces of cloth. It will feature bright colours, textures and knits but will steer clear of the java. The collection will also stay true to its emphasis on “being different” by putting a slight spin on popular geometric inspirations.
This will take the form of simple geometric shapes created in fabrics and knits of varying weights to create stiking shapes and silhouettes around the female figure. This Intisaar Collection is a collaboration with the Ndau Jewellery Collection, which will add yet another level of texture through accessorising. Ultimately, the collection will evidence how simple pieces styled differently, with innovative cuts can be true showstoppers.
Over 30 established and emerging designers in Africa are showcasing fabulous collections in 16 fashion shows within a period of 4 days from 29th october to 1st November at Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, South Africa.
