ARISE Made in Africa – Spring 2012: KLûK CGDT



Powehouse South African fashion brand, KLûK CGDT closed the ARISE Made in Africa – Spring 2012 Collective Show.

Trust Malcolm Kluk and Christiaan Gabriel Du Toit to deliver the goods! The duo celebrated the “romance” of the continent. Rather than take the approach which many international brand use when they present African-inspired collections (animal print, prints etc…), the duo kept things soft and ethereal. KLûK CGDT made great use of sheer chiffon in black and various light hues. Flower detailing illustrated the influence of nature in this collection while pearls and small clutch bags added a delightful sophisticated finish to the collection.

      so wish they had also invited some designers who like to showcase more “African prints” and styles like my all-time favorite Gilles Toure. That man is amazing.
