ASHA : ELEVEN

She’s in contemplation, tuning into her inner being.  She knows she is the creator of her inner garden,  her reality. She follows the path of least resistance,  3-6-9 makes all the sense to her.  And as the sequence of nature, she unfolds. It’s a time of purification.  A time of inner searching, for her lost essence. In a journey back to the beginning of life itself.  Watch her unfold, just as she’s meant to. Just as the perfection of the nature that created her.

The Winter 2020 Capsule Collection invites you to open and embrace the new solar cycle of Winter Solstice.  As the sun rays shine into the dark, and nurture newborn life; we celebrate one of the most powerful points of the year as the axis of the Earth pauses, shifts and moves in the opposite direction.  The sun standing still creates a mirror for the energy of the Solstice; to pivot and transform with intention whilst building on this energy as we enter into a new season of our lives. Invoking introspection, it is the fruitful darkness, stillness and silence out of which our soul’s true purpose and new inspirations can emerge.  Let us unify in consciously linking our awareness to nature’s cycles and in doing so embrace our understanding of our own personal growth cycles as they begin to deepen and create space for regeneration and rebirth.

Featuring a range of timeless classics which transcend seasons and trends, Asha : Eleven’s Capsule Collection is designed with functionality, quality and comfort at the forefront. The line intends to furnish your core basics whilst creating the foundation for a sustainable wardrobe. The versatile styles invite you to elaborate with layering for depth and warmth.

The Capsule Collection is here to stay, it will never go on sale and you can expect to see the same classic styles repeated season after season, reinterpreted only by the palette of the cycle. It invites you to consider and consciously approach how you consume fashion; encouraging us all to put sustainability and the preservation of our planet as well as the people on it first. The range is fabricated from the highest quality natural fibres which include Hemp and Organic Cotton blend as well as pure Tencel™️, the most sustainable textile currently available which is made from tree bark.  The collection is manufactured by small factories in Cape Town where the care and needs of the workers are considered and met.

MASAMARA

Migration plays such a big role in the world today that I found it very easy to call my collection “Migration is Beautiful  #destroyallborders.”  My collection mirrors the fact that migration is not a problem but a process.  I wanted to share the untold side of immigrant stories.

The platform that was given to me gave me the opportunity to move away from the negative narrative that frequently go with immigrants and immigration,  to one that told their stories from their own perspective. Immigrants are people who for any number of reasons, may become displaced in their countries of origin and find themselves searching for better pastures in foreign lands.  They often get misinterpreted as criminals, or as people that take resources away from the people in their own countries.  There might be individuals who will fall in this category, but there are more who  make an honest living for themselves and therefore contribute to the economy of the new country they find themselves in.  These are the people that leave their country as respected professionals and finding themselves etching a stable, honest living whichever way they can.  The positive narrative that we should encourage here is that we are all human beings trying to survive and thrive – and these are the stories that should be told.

I got  my inspiration for my collection from  my own life experiences.  I was born in Rwanda but was brought up in different parts of Africa as a Refugee.  Everything I went through was always based on the Moto of “us versus them”.  This never made sense to me because we have so much in common.  We are all human beings that strive the same goals in life for ourselves and our loved ones, which is: safety, success (every person have their own interpretation of success) and to know that we are healthy, contributing members of  the society, where ever we might find ourselves.

To use the words of Maya Angelou, “the crux of the message is that we are more alike than unalike, and therefore cannot be divided as humans because of borders.”  It is also relevant socially because the sooner we realise that our differences should not be our stumbling blocks, but rather our points of celebration.  As soon as we can embrace our commonalities, our whole social fabric will be mended because it relies heavily on unity as the entire global society. I believe that colours are energies and carry messages and I use colours  to tell my stories.  In this collection, I used multi colours and prints inspired by different cultures to show the harmony that can exist amongst people.

Starting with the collection, I had to come up with colours, prints, designs, cuts and details, and in order for me to do that I had to transport myself back to where everything started. I had to relive my journey to be able to share my feelings with  the world, what and how it is to be a foreigner or a refugee. I had to showcase  those experiences through this collection.  This brought major challenges in the designing process.  I had to relive my life story, and that opened  a whole emotional journey. Giving that the collection was print-on-print, it was a challenge to ensure that the prints as well as colour combinations worked well together, to convey the story of my life.  It was  financially challenging to ensure that the message I wanted to convey came through given the limited resources I had to my disposal.  Keeping in mind that everything from fabric designing to printing, as well as working on my own, added to the challenges.

 It would be a dream come true if my collection could  be received and appreciated by the global community #thebraveones and that I can open a conversation through this to show the bravery of immigrants, and make sure that their stories are properly told.  I don’t have any particular favourites but I do appreciate artist who stay true to themselves in how they express their artistry and crafts.  Cape Town has been a home that hasn’t felt like home, although I have spent half my life there, feeling that I am still not being accepted. I share this feeling with many other foreign nationals. This was the most important motivation that urged me to tell my story through my collection.  This is my way to highlight the importance of acceptance.

Being unique and not shying away from my uniqueness might shock people.  We must accept that every person is unique in his/her own way.  I’ve found that many would rather follow the crowd, against their own believes, in order to fit in and be accepted.  To stay connected to myself and who I am, I need to express myself and be properly represented and that is what my collections is all about.

MOSADI MO SEKAKENG “DESERT WOMEN”

Olayinka Noel’s childhood dream to accessorise garments with bold jewellery matured into a fast developing business. She explains how her life changed since designing jewellery started to play a major role in her life.

It was with great excitement that I met Olayinka Noel and saw her accessory brand MIANIK. Olayinka’s journey in the fashion industry started as a young girl in Atlanta. She can still remember the joy she experienced every year when opening her birthday gifts from her mother. Seeing the pieces of jewellery initiated her passion for accessorising with jewellery.

Olayinka’s path took her first on a music career. This gave her an opportunity to envision her dream as Jewellery designer and launch her own Brand. The brand name MIANIK was derived from a combination of her two older sisters and her middle names. Her sisters have always supported her and led by example. MIANIK symbolises Sisterhood, Unity, Friendship and Loyalty.

The Brand was launched in October 2016 in Atlanta. Jewellery and accessorising have always been the way Olayinka expresses herself. Her designs are mainly Afro-Guyanese inspired with infusions from places she visited during her travels. She lives to find or create designs that showcases her Heritage. The quality of her work lifts the reflection of her customers outfit to a higher level. Every piece is unique and gives an individuality to it.

SLOW LIVING

Featuring Ghanaian model Napari, shot by a South African team, at the peaceful expanse of Langebaan, this magical shoot celebrates slow fashion and the potential it has to correct our course as clothing over-producers.

Think about this for a moment: the global production of clothing has doubled since 2000. In only two decades, we’ve increased clothing output by 100%. But, while people buy more clothing today than 20 years ago, they only keep clothing for half as long.

That’s a pretty scary fact when you marry it with the fact that one garbage truck full of clothes is burned or dumped in a landfill – every second!

Let’s not even get into the labour issues, natural resource over-consumption and pollution problems that surround fast fashion and our obsession with something new to wear. What a legacy: we are literally wearing ourselves out of a planet.

It’s against this background that Daisie Jo is charging ahead in producing even more clothes, with her eponymous brand Daisie Jo.

Daisie Jo, former assistant creative director at Marianne Fassler, stands in total opposition to everything that fast fashion has normalised. Championing “mindful consumption”, she creates slow fashion that celebrates ‘slow living’ – in fact, the designer herself recently relocated her studio to the calm and quiet of the Karoo.

Her primary focus, far beyond what’s cool or trendy, is on craft, quality and timeless beauty. “At Daisie Jo, we embrace our imperfections and humanness,” she says, explaining that she creates season-less clothes with their lifespan in mind – “a piece you mend over time, instead of chucking it out.”

Each limited-edition piece is hand-crafted and is either once-off or part of small-batch collections, all produced in-house. Using fabrics like linen and silk, her garments feel that much better on the skin, knowing that they stand for something.

Daisie Jo’s playful but sophisticated brand asks each one of us: what will I stand for? Without a doubt, it’s time to stand with slow fashion.

THE DISTRICT

This story was shot by South African/German Photographer Daniela Müller-Brunke with local models, on the grounds of what was previously known as District Six.

Whenever Daniela shoots in her native South Africa, she always tries to somehow –if the work allows it–include a message. A reminder of the important history that shaped the country as we know it today. This is why she chose the old District Six, an overgrown piece of wasteland now known as Zonnebloem, to capture MCM’s Autumn/Winter 2019 collection. A collection without boundaries, celebrating fluidity of identity and the freedom of expression.

Going by its name since 1867, the district was mainly inhabited by freed, slaves, traders, artists and immigrants. However, this multi-cultural melting pot was forcibly evacuated. In the late 1960s the apartheid government declared it a “whites only” area, as part of the Group Areas Act. They relocated more than 60.000 people to townships in the Cape Flats, a sandy plain southeast of Cape Town. Nine Years after the end of apartheid, the government built 24 new homes on the old grounds of District Six. And in 2004, Nelson Mandela handed over the first keys of these homes to returnees, enabling them to move back. 

Our story shows a new generation of young South Africans: overlooking the city of Cape Town whilst standing on the grounds of what was previously known as District Six. A new, free generation with hopes for the future and more possibilities than their grandparents and parents ever had.

ORANGE CULTURE

For Adebayo Okelawal, passion and resilience lead to growth which in turn lead to more knowledge and confidence in his work. Fashion stylist Anna Rykova chats to Adebayo about his growth, the hardest parts of fashion and the role of social media in business.

You are a self-taught designer who’s first profession had nothing to do with fashion and it wasn’t really your choice. Was it difficult to tell your family that fashion was what you want to dedicate your life to? What scared you the most when you worked on your first collection and how did you fight your fears?

It was difficult to tell my parents, especially my dad. In Nigeria, the generation before us had not seen a lot of fashion careers to use as yardsticks or examples to encourage their belief in us having such careers. So it took a lot, and a lot of sacrifice for me; I had to intern while I was in school and work on the side without their knowledge and learn on my own. My mum was easier to convince but my dad was very adamant about it because he didn’t believe I could survive financially on fashion.

That scared me and it also was one of my fears growing up, wondering if fashion could sustain the life I dreamed of.

When it came to my first collection, my biggest fear was that it would be hated and which it honestly was haha. I think what helped me defeat my fear was the realisation that I doing it with fear! I learnt to just go for it no matter what.

Fast forward to 2020 my parents are now so supportive because they’ve seen how resilient I am and they’ve seen growth. I am still designing every collection afraid but with a little more knowledge of self and more confidence!

When I first interviewed you in 2013, you were at the early stage of your career, you were very excited and “hungry”. Did anything change about how you feel for fashion now?

I am still very excited and even more hungry. I’d say more hungry than excited lol.

I work with a lot of aspiring designers and for many of them, fashion seems to be easy. A lot of them are misguided by Instagram success stories of other designers and brands and look at the fashion industry as a happy place which is not always as such. What did you have to sacrifice on your journey? What sides (moments) are the most challenging?

The hardest parts of fashion for me are the business side, manufacturing locally and understanding the ever-changing customer.

Fashion is one of the most difficult businesses in the world and it requires a lot of passion for it to stay running for years!

Speaking of social media. You seem to enjoy blogging. You are more than a designer but also an influencer. Do you think being active on Instagram (and I am speaking about your personal account) helps the business?

It does! I wear a lot of Orange Culture and so people who love my style, shop what I’ve worn. Also, I find a lot of customers want to know the face behind the brand and once they buy into the person behind the brand, they also sometimes buy into the brand.

Do you try to make your Instagram life look prettier than it actually is? What do you like to blog about the most?

To be very honest – I just post what I feel. I think with social media, you post what makes you happy and moments you don’t want to forget! Which is why I rarely post really sad moments.

I do not post anything fake or pretentious though.

You follow more than 4000 people on Instagram. Who are they?

Editors, stylists, style connoisseurs, artists in general, flower shops, foodies, animal lovers ( especially cats ) and Instagram crushes.

At your most challenging times, what makes you go on? What motivates you?

Family, close friends and prayers!

A couple of years ago I met participants of one design project in Nairobi. What surprised me was that none of them wore their own designs! You, on the other hand, always wear your stuff. Which is the right thing to do if you ask an editor. Apart from Orange Culture, what are your other top 3 brands to wear?

Thank you so much! Wow, my top 3 brands that I wear aside from Orange Culture!

  1. DRICKY
  2. Emmy Kasbit
  3. The Ruin

If you were offered the job of a creative director at one of the big international brands but you would have to give up your own brand, would you take it?

I would not give up my brand, we would have to negotiate better haha. I would love to be the creative director of a big brand though.

If you had a chance to have an internship or be an assistant of any fashion designer dead or alive who would it be? And in fact, do you believe nowadays, when everything changes so fast, it’s still necessary to assist for few years before you start your own thing?

I agree you should most definitely intern! I’d assist Kim Jones.

What does your regular day look like?

No day is regular haha.

BEACH CULT

Africa Is Now Magazine - Beach Cult

What inspires you?

Everything! I live in a constant state of conceptual redesign. Particularly when I travel – a whole new collection could be inspired by the color of a fruit, a piece of modern art or the song of a street band

Are there any tips you would like to give young entrepreneurs locally and in Africa on how to start a fashion brand?

Keep it local and be consistent. I produce 100% locally with small local artisans and CMT’s, and all my prints are collaborations with local artists and illustrators. Whilst this can be more expensive, it translates very well both locally and internationally on a sustainability and design front. I would also suggest avoiding trying to compete with high street fashion – they produce millions of units and you won’t be able to compete on price, so rather compete on design! I specialise in one of a kind prints designed here in South Africa in unique silhouettes – I’m not trying to appeal to everyone – just to my loyal customer base who have grown over the years and who I treasure.

Give us an idea of a day in in the life of your business

It’s December now so it’s particularly busy for me! I head off fabric shopping while also collecting our printed fabrics, to get some production in before Christmas ( all our key dresses have sold out early) and the lovely ladies at my favourite CMT, Merwe Mode, are staying open so we can finish some more styles in time. At the same time, the girls head to our Loop Street store to send out our online orders, before going down to our pop up at the waterfront – we have just launched The Ultimate Summer Pop UP opposite Woolworths until the end of January, which is pretty exciting. I meet everyone at the waterfront and manage the staff and check on merchandising before we sit down for a marketing meeting. We run all of our own marketing and typically each week we will send out a mailer to our clients, as well as 3 – 5 Instagram and Facebook posts per week. Then it’s back to running the pop up – we have 15 other local designers on board and we run the sales for them as well. The girls will finish up the day at the waterfront whilst I head to design meetings – I’ve started conceptualising next year’s collection already and I’m meeting with print designers to work on some ideas. To finish up, most evenings in December have a fashion event or party on – tonight we have the Bokeh fashion film event at the Silo for some champagne and to catch up with the local industry!

What’s your favourite swimwear trend for 2020?

I’m really turned on by animal print – somehow it’s just working for me this season. All our current season prints feature animals in some way, and we will definitely carry this tone forward to the next collection (without giving anything away here).

Africa Is Now Magazine - Beach Cult

Tell us a bit more about where you source your fabrics?

Most of our fabric is sourced locally, except some of our swimwear fabric which is sourced in Italy and Asia – but all printed locally.

Do you manufacture your swimwear in South Africa?

Yes, 100% locally here in Cape Town.

Where is your biggest clientele? Local or international?

Our main loyal clientele is actually local. We have the same wonderful clients who purchase all the pieces from each collection, they know our fits and prints and refuse to buy swimwear anywhere else. We do however now sell in Greece and Turkey, and we sell online internationally – mostly to Europe and the USA.

Where can we buy your product?

The best place this summer is at our V&A Waterfront concept store – The Ultimate Summer Pop Up, opposite Woolworths on the Lower Ground floor ( we also have a selection of other fabulous local designers there). Otherwise online at www.beachcult.co.za, or at our studio store at 30 Loop Street.

Do you see a future for local designers in South Africa?

Yes – as long as they continue to produce locally with a strong South African flair – I think we can grow our export market and compete in terms of authenticity and uniqueness on an international level.

Describe yourself in 3 words

Creative, Caring, Entrepreneur.

How do you design to cater for different shapes?

We have a big variety of shapes in our brand – from tiny Brazilian style bikinis and high cut deep v one pieces to high waist 50’s style bikinis and full coverage one-pieces. I do however think that as a small brand you should avoid trying to appeal to everyone – I have someone tell me what style of bikini I should make or what other size almost every day, despite making nearly 50 swimwear styles in 5 sizes. I don’t think niche brands should shoot themselves in the foot by trying to make everyone happy – I simply don’t have enough sales volumes to justify it – I think you should make your brand for your target market and don’t dilute your brand by appealing to absolutely everyone.

What’s sparked your interest in fashion?

My grandmother. She was completely fabulous. She made me all kinds of amazing clothes when I was a child – from tartan little suit dresses to clown costumes – anything I wanted she would make on her sewing machine. She believed in dressing up everyday in fantastic dresses, feathered hats and jewels and always made everyone smile.

Where do you see your brand going in the future?

Our online sales are really booming and we would like to keep this is our focus, along with our loop street store as our base. I’d like to expand to being sold in swim concept stores in Europe and the USA as well.

As a creative how do you plan on giving back to the community?

I produce 100% locally with small groups of local artisans and women from Cape Town. I believe in supporting mom & pop industries in all of our production, as well as employing locals. I believe one of the best things we can do to support our economy and community is to create small local businesses to create jobs and increase local production. The trickle-down effect of each job created is critical to the local economy on a very basic level – the more sales we get, the more jobs we create, and the more local industry we support.

I also employ four interns per year, as I remember how hard to was to break into the local industry which is dominated by either mass industry, or small local designers who don’t have employees. To date, everyone who has interned with us has gone on to get a job or has been employed by us!

Who do you really want to dress in your swimwear? Who’s your dream client?

I love fabulous, outrageous women. Gypsetters who was to wear a whole look from BeachCult and go adventuring in Zanzibar or Tulum, and don’t abide by the clothing rules of society.

LESOTHO RODEO

Chu Suwannapha’s unisex Spring/ Summer ’20 collection is inspired by Sotho culture and the Sotho mountain people, a swirl of cultures and a blurring of borders.

africa_is_now-CHULAAP-fashion-011

Think Wild Wild West; Africa edition. There is a distinct cowboy reference, but it’s more complex than the sheriff hat. The unexpected combinations of Western Cowboy scarves, streetwear beanies, sporty re-deconstructed sandals, and sophisticated tailoring give the story it’s edge.

The looks can be described as sophisticated streetwear and African dandy-esque.
