So here a thing,  I have never gave much heed to South African Fashion Week (SAFW) and one of the prime reasons is that; I was never afforded time to be present at the event (Likewise MBFWJ and MBFWA). The state of ennui that I have succumbed,  has lead me to the programme which accelerated my jaws to the floor at terminal velocity by the unfamiliarity of designers who showcasing. Do not get me wrong, I have a close association with most of the designers on the programme ( and by close association I mean; I can familiarise the name from a bar of soap) and one such designer that I have a close association with is Anmari Honiball.

I was initially introduced to Anmari Honiball in 2012 when she was selected as a finalist for the ELLE NEW RISING STAR design awards and have grown to appreciate the beauty underlined in her work ever-since.   The AW15 collection plays with colour (Think: red, pink and blues) in a childlike manner. I am absolutely obsessed with the use of bright play dough-like, amoeba shaped collage-esque detailing, especially on the black black drop,

Amazing local jewellery brand Pichulik freshly launched their S/S15 Lookbook. Habitually drawing influences from the rich, vibrant and eclectic continent of Africa, the brand remains true to this aesthetic while the delicate craftsmanship progresses further North and the Middle East.
Baraka is the beneficent force from god that flows through the physical and spiritual spheres as prosperity, protection and happiness. This collaborative capsule collection is informed by Islamic Mailian architecture of North Africa and the garb of Islamic tribes that wander these lands.
 I am obsessed with the use of more gold and the use of white plains of linen. The collection is available to shop online here.
