From Botswana with Pride: Designer Koketso Chiepe at 2010 Africa Fashion Week

The Koketso Chiepe collection showcased consisted of cute flirty cuts, girly details like bows, patterned prints and stripped  delicate chiffon and it stayed true to her love for  colourful and fun-loving fashion. It was cowl necks, mini skirts, deep-plunging necklines and sequin dresses.  There is emphasis on the shoulders with asymmetric sleeves, sweet-heart necklines, and  braid, embroidery and rose appliqe  details.  The print and monochrome stripped dresses are the stand-out pieces in this collection, the softness and sheerness of silks and chiffon combined with complementary cuts, all enhance their allure.

    I LOVED this collection. It was different from all the spacey futuristic collections that everyone was doing. So for me it was refreshing. Abigail Betz was also cool

    apart from the stripped looks most of it is just too mismatched

    Its an ok collection, I think its harder when you have to work with plain fabric so I guess the brains behind the collection tried..
