Event: Textile & Senses

A Fashion Show to Celebrate Success & Achievements

On October, 15th 2016 I presented a ladies, limited-edition fashion collection. Commissioned to celebrate “Success and Achievement” in the context of Black History Month, the focus is on textiles, with the purple as a common thread throughout the collection. Historically, purple was a very rare colour in the dying textile industry. Its rarity in clothing made it the privilege of the noble, wealthy and successful.

The collection

My garments range from casual to chic and formal with an elegant flair. The aim of the collection is to inspire you to be bolder in your textile and colour choices, and in your prints for the various occasions in your life as a stylish woman. In my opinion, textiles can be not only be viewed, but also breathed, heard and be symbolic The result is “Textile and Senses”
