“If music is the food of life, then fashion is the fabric that binds” – Nhlanhla Nciza
And with that, NN Vintage launched out onto the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg runway. A fusion of all things African; the collection featured fabrics from Kenya, Uganda, Ghana and South Africa. NN Vintage is a fusion of a number of elements in design and fabric to showcase the diversity of the brand. Combinations came in the form of leather with sequins, to give some garments the urban glam; stretch cotton, was combined with fur; and African prints with leather to create a modern touch.
Inspired by modern Africa and the ever evolving vintage fashion, “The Evolution Collection” aspired to showcase the constant rise of Africa, as a continent and the pride we have in African culture. The common thread of life through Africa is the willingness to grow and develop, without losing one’s culture, and that is captured in this collection. It is now time for Africa to shine, to take centre stage, and to let the world appreciate the force of African fashion.
