The collection is constructed in flat classic silhouettes, the knitted surface designs of the textiles are adorned in MAXHOSA signature patterns, which dominate the looks. With this collection, I aim to express the beauty in culture exchange of the dress codes of western and Xhosa dress-code. All the looks are sketched with an ultimate objective of constructing an innovative utopian African feel, that will outlive the time span of the collection.
The envisioned outcome of the collection is to use a positive approach to appropriation, dominate classic knitwear appeal, with a distinctive modern Xhosa aesthetic, to make a bold and sophisticated cultural meets modern statement.
