A few weeks ago I gave you a taste of what can be expected in terms of colour & design of the #MyFabulousDBN collection that Sibu Msimang has been working on for the Skip Fashion Exchange happening in Maboneng on the 13th of August. If you missed that post, I suggest you give it a read – here.

I visited Sibu’s studio twice in the past few weeks & it has been amazing to see her progress from week to week. We went from discussing images that inspired her; to seeing a piece of fabric digitized in that imagery; to finally seeing an entire garment made up in it. Exciting right? And what is even better is that it is the people of Durban who have inspired it.

What excites me most about this gorgeous #MyFabulousDBN collection, is that Sibu has taken a trendy, but still wearable approach to the collection. I can picture all types of women wearing the pieces.

The #MyFabulousDBN, as well as the #MyFabulousJHB & #MyFabulousCPT collections will be showcased at the SKIP Fashion Exchange on 13 August 2015 in Maboneng. I am super excited for the event which I will be attending with Sibu, & all the other designers & bloggers involved in the #MyFabulous campaign.

Details on how you can get your hands on a ticket to the SKIP Fashion Exchange coming soon. Be sure to follow Skip on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram (@skipsouthafrica) for updates.
