Vintage Allure & Rouge Take Over in Gavin Rajah’s Couture 2015/16 Campaign

Gavin Rajah Campaign 2015-2016 Couture - BellaNaija - August2015002

Award-winning South African entrepreneur, fashion designer and UNISEF Goodwill ambassador, Gavin Rajah is one of the most celebrated designers in Africa. His works in fashion rank him among one of the most noted alongside David Tlale, Marianne Fassler and more. And that is why his upcoming 2015/2016 couture collection is rumored to be one of his most exciting yet.

This season, the collection visits the decadence of the underground clubs of the 70’s. The collection draws inspiration from woman who dresses immaculately with a provocative edge and is the life of the party. It has been dedicated to women who have a passion for living their lives to the fullest and appreciating the finer things in life.

Gavin used a combination of fabrics to bring the pieces to life – from cotton meshes with rich silk brocades and silk crepes with a transparency with garments that combine sexiness of femininity and female allure. The collection is a subtle collective of cocktail and evening separates right down to evening gowns.

Speaking on his collection, Gavin says – “I have always been passionate about couture – this collection for me retains that passion even though it is a luxe Prêt-à-Porter collection. We have brought a slightly harder and youthful edge to a season that has been playing with ‘new’ romanticism and Bohemia.”
