Wana Sambo is a high street fashion brand with each piece is designed with a target for daily use. This means that every WS piece can be worn repeatedly and dressed up in different ways by the wearer.
“Our design aesthetic ensures that each design is not limited to events or occasions. Most pieces can easily transform from day-wear to night-wear”
The collection ‘Light as Air’ stemmed from the designer’s appreciation for the tulle fabric; Its softness and free-flowing nature ensures the comfort of the wearer and the ability to make one feel ‘Light-as-Air.’
The lookbook was shot on an old ship. The model is in a state of confusion/dissatisfaction and she wonders why her fantasy about living luxuriously on a ship is unreal. She sees herself as a demi-god able to tackle anything because she is ‘light-as-air’. Like every fantasy, it ends and reality sets in. . . it is an old ship in the dock.
“The use of the Ankara fabric for hand scrunchies, shorts, pockets and inner linings, and the multi-coloured Aso-oke skirt ensures our staying true to African heritage per collection. The Wana Sambo woman is fierce, strong and exotic.“
