One thing we love about the fashion industry is how various fashion brands in different sectors get to showcase their creativity and passion through fashion collections. A fashion collection, including a capsule one, is a collection of various products all with the same mood and theme to depict a particular story.

The Fall/Winter 2020 collection embodies the signature outlook of the brand which is essentially the unique use of wax prints. It also promotes the innovative use of traditional embroidery techniques.
So, how was the collection executed?
In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the world, the Fall/Winter 2020 Collection was delivered through a virtual runway featuring inclusive models that rocked the pieces from the collection.
Streamed live on various channels, including Instagram and YouTube, many people from all over the world got to be a part of the virtual premiere.
And what exactly makes this collection unique?
The Fall/Winter 2020 Collection is a mix of the Neo-African culture and trendy designs to give an indeed sophisticated and core African aesthetic. Most of the fabrics used are locally sourced African fabrics that truly portray the heritage and culture of the continent, such as Adire, African wax prints, Lace, Batik and many more.
The fabrics were then used to design a range of outfits, including dresses, tops, trousers and more, that feature trendy styles. The Bishop sleeves, ruched style, corsets, asymmetric skirts, one-off shoulder, amongst others were some of the styles that featured in this collection.
