Oct '13
Celebrity favourite South African fashion designer Gavin Rajah opened the ongoing segment of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013 with his latest Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
 
Titled as ‘From Behind the Veil’, the line was inspired from the roles played by veiled women during wars, as depicted in Arthurian Legends. 
 
With a strong focus on intricate detailing and clear cut precision, the collection, which was dedicated to the designer’s muse Gretha Scholtz-Tholstrup, was made from soft sensuous fabrics like silk and organza.
 
Based on masculine silhouettes, the pieces include jackets with oversized pockets, serpentine print skirts and dresses with concealed pleats, silver metallic shorts and pants, and floor-length gowns with metal embellishments.
 
Going on in the City of Tshwane, South Africa, the event also presented collections from labels like Black Coffee, Albertus Swanepoel, Laurence Airline, Taico Bacar, Dorin Mashika and Ghanaian-born and Milan-based designer Nana Kweku Brenu’s label 1981. 
 
The fashion event is organized by African Fashion International, a platform for bringing in designers from the entire continent to the forefront. The platform offers direct access to the designers to domestic and international markets.
