The most important thing for me when it comes to sustainable fashion are the materials. For this collection we have used organic cotton, recycled cotton and linen. One of my biggest goals is to spread the message about the importance of using sustainable, durable materials as I create fashion that people should – and can – wear for a lifetime. The Co-Lab is a great way to share this message with fashion lovers around the world.
When it comes to fashion design, many of us immediately think of New York, London, Milan, Paris… Do you think Cape Town is wrongly overlooked?
Not only Cape Town is often overlooked when it comes to fashion design: There is great style and creativity from many African and Asian countries – actually on all continents! Fortunately, there are now many more fashion weeks than the traditional four, including Lagos and South Africa, Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai and Berlin Fashion Week, to name just a few. So we can hope that in the future there will be visibility, credibility and support for all the amazing designers around the world.
Do you think your cooperation with & Other Stories contributes to this hoped-for increased visibility?
My hopes and wishes for the collab are definitely to shed a light on African design and the magical nature of our enigmatic continent.
