    Now we’re talking! Very little of fashion has to do with originality. It’s about re-invention and presentation. This designer shows she’s done her homework. I’d rock the first three outfits outrightly, and the looks in the last two as well. Not a fan of those pink satin pants, but I’d pair a lot of the separates into day and night time looks. I want that polka dot skirt!

    Now this-is exciting!I’d wear every single one of them.This is a designer who thinks out of the box and has boldly departed from the ankara craze..It’s about time people realise how versatile and unique tie-dye is and the best thing is you’re less likely to see someone else wearing the exact same design!
