We are so excited to introduce Vanessa Gounden’s gorgeous new collection to you!
Vanessa’s spring-summer 2015 collection reminds us why she one of South Africa’s most successful designers. The fashion export seems to be just as proud of her roots as we are of her, as the collection clearly reflects the spirit of Africa.
The striking collection is the perfect collision of fashion and art. Vivid colours like hot pink and zesty yellow, luxury fabrics like raw silk, and intricate details like embroidery and Swarovski crystals give life to each of these pieces of art.
Of course we HAVE to mention the incredible prints and patterns – all inspired by African culture, tradition and symbolism. Vanessa created the prints around three African words; ‘Isisuka’ meaning source, ‘Bhabhatane’ meaning butterfly, and ‘Iselwa’ meaning calabash. The results were beautiful, bold and exclusive fabrics.
After a cold, dull winter, Vanessa’s collection is the perfect injection of colour for your summer wardrobe. You can shop Vanessa G London at D’Oré Sandton City, or www.dorefashion.co.za.
