I would like to have all the above in my closet, and I WILL find an occasion to wear them to. This is Karishma Shahani’s Spring Summer 2014 collection. The Kaam Kaaj collection shows a unique form of block printing technique known as the Ajrak. The Ajrak technique uses natural dyes, which Karishma Shahani shows throughout the collection.
Tata Naka Autumn/Winter 2014-15 Ready-To-Wear. My favourites from the collection. I think it is interesting that Tata Naka’s inspiration was interior design. Taking in the aesthetics of carpets, tiles, wallpapers and fabrics – this was crafted.
She is best known for mixing bold prints with loud patterns, and looking effortless stepping out in it. Solange Knowles always looks so put together. If anyone ever noticed, she seems to have the best accessories to team up with her bold choices in fashion. Fearless she is.
It’s a lifestyle and a display of their creativity. It would be nice to see these men in African print fabrics – like the Ankara prints and Batik prints.
Watch the short documentary by Guinness on these men and how they define themselves.
Lalesso and Pichulik did a collaboration and did not inform me! Oh well, found out a little late about this. The South African designers make for a perfect collaboration don’t you think? With Lalesso‘s stunning fabrics and the magic ropes of Pichulik, very fresh and original.
She blogs at thehijablog and is a living style icon to veiled women all over the world. Imaan Ali is an activist, concerned with Islam, women’s rights and Arab politics. Non-muslim followers look to her for fresh ideas and style inspiration as well. Like me!
