Arise presents African Icons.
I was particularly excited about this show as Ozwald Boateng’s SS13 collection was featured. As we all know he never fails to impress his audience, and this time was no exception. His latest awe inspiring collection was showcased to a large audience that was packed with NYFW’s hottest crowd. The front row saw celebrity’s such as Angela Simmons & Olivia former Gunit to name but a few. Ozwald’s collection was very exciting. A diverse mix of male models brought the pieces in this collection, which capitalised on an array of colour’s, pattern’s and texture’s, to life. Colour blocking also featured heavily throughout the collection and the use of African print on classically tailored suits brought the pieces right up to date and bang on trend.
