Style meets structure.
Graphic shapes create synergy with bold linear prints and colours of this Collection.
The Super African Acrobats joined forces eight years ago after leaving Tanzania, and moving to South Africa in search of a better life. Their group has now grown to six members. These skilled artists are self taught. They choreograph and train during the week, and weekends find them busking, as it is their sole source of income. They perform with perfect precision, combining acrobatic gymnastics with somersaulting and hand balancing, forming perfect human pyramids and figure formations.
Fashion is emotion and with every garment or textile I design, I remember my story. I become that hopeful little boy all over again. I remember that strength comes from pain, that joy comes from sorrow, and each cut, each color, shape and elements used in designing our textiles and garments carry the energy and strength of those who I come from. My ancestors – the pillars of my Africanness, my strength and whose DNA and blood runs through my veins. Their Identity, stories, values are the DNA that is in each textile and garment that I design. I am one of the chosen ones to carry the torch that shines upon every African child – MASAMARA
