Local monochrome collection takes to the runway at the COSMO Fashion Festival.
Monochrome fashion seems to be the look of the moment, dropping the colour in favour of a strict monochrome palette. Last night (Friday, 27 July 2018) three of South Africa’s top designers; Prime Obsession, Imprint ZA and Lukhanyo Mdingi; showcased their Skip Monochrome Collection at the COSMO Fashion Festival.
Each designer has gone exclusively monochrome and you can view their designs at the Skip Monochrome Pop-up Shop in Cape Town, Canal Walk Shopping Centre from 7 – 21 August 2018.
Pieces are limited and all sales from the monochrome pop-up shop will be donated to The Creative Leaders Trust. The trust assists current and prospective students at FEDISA to uplift the future of local fashion.
Caroline Blumrick, Brand Manager of Skip South Africa believes “the quality of the work on show is compelling proof of the incredible talent the local fashion industry has to offer and, as a passionately South African brand, we want to boost the visibility and viability of that talent.”
One of the big challenges of monochrome clothing is that, without proper care, the quality quickly begins to spoil – dark clothing fades, the lighter pieces get a yellowy look, and the fabric degenerates. Skip recently launched the Perfect Care range of washing liquids specifically designed for white and dark clothing. Blumrick says: “Whatever your monochrome staples – whether it’s your favourite LBD, a faux fur black coat or your comfiest pair of white jeans – this liquid can keep your items newer for longer.”
Shop the exceptionally crafted monochromatic pieces, pop-in at the Cape Town pop-up shop, Canal Walk, Cape Town | 7 – 21 August 2018.
