It seems the designer himself may agree that after the crowds reaction at his showcase at Africa International Fashion Week 2016, the Risqué “De Dix-Sept” Collection definitely needs to be highlighted more. And this may just be the reason for the new polished look book.
According to the brand, the collection, which translates as ’17’ in French, draws its inspiration from the growing strength of women. They stated – “Over the years, things have changed and women now have a strong voice. There’s equality between both sexes, thanks to 17 influential women who have fought for their rights. Women like Joan of Arc, Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, Cleopatra, Anne Boleyn, Marie Curie, Virginia Wolf, Mother Teresa, Edith Piaf, Indira Gandhi, Sophie Scholl, Eva Peron, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Benazir Bhutto, Queen Victoria of England, Celia Sanchez and Lakshmi Sehgal.”
