‘Womanhood to its Origins of Tenderness’- Thula Sindi at 2010 Africa Fashion Week

The Thula Sindi collection embraced feminine cuts and exuded sophisticated elegance. From the tailored pants to the pencil skirts and  also the classic 1950’s swing skirts.  It is woman friendly; soft fabrics, delicate details and made to flatter every curve!

He presented vastly varied styles  in this collection, from the glamorous floor length dresses, either in bold animal print or mixed prints which he combines with sexy thigh high slits, vintage lace  or a rise and fall hemline to his individual take on cargo jackets and skirts.

All the pieces in this collection are very wearable, that’s what I really like, they can go straight from the runway to someones closet. The cocktail dresses are easily my favourite, the girly frill details, the colours and prints, the waist enhancing cinched waists, sequins, lace inserts, cut-out sleeves, all thoroughly executed with exquisite finishing!

    Luv it! I’ve notice many male designers sometimes do the gentlest women’s designs.

    I am so so impressed. These models are gorgeous!
    Thank God I didn’t see one pankere that is about to break, walking d runway!
    Can’t remember d last time I saw a model with nice derriere, boobs, hips etc to complement the female physical anatomy.
    Before now, I was beginning to think that animals had better fashion sense than we humans.
    God forgive me, but sometimes I wish Lady gaga, her ridiculous outfits, together with her designer should catch fire, nonsense!
    Way to go Africa, muah!
