Last season in New York, Oxford Fashion Studio opened in such a bold way. I will be running through my favourite fashion moments of NYFW.
Starting with Sabina Saga, (Below) her SS17 Dynasty collection was absolutely show-stopping.
In an Instagram post, Sabina Saga wrote about her latest collection:
“I am so happy to announce the official release of my new collection inspired by my Ethnic Roots, made in honor of the country where I was born-Kazakhstan. This is a great honor, but also a huge responsibility to represent my Homeland at international contests. Thanks everyone for the love and support! ❤️”
Sabina Saga’s talent, passion and sheer creativity makes her designs even more captivating. Her use of 3D printing is highly commendable and I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
I loved writing for Urban Zulu but most of all, I love what they stand for.
In the interview I conducted with Papy Kaluw, he said:
“Urban Zulu as a brand actually has a mandate, I am a little bit religious, I believe that God has assigned me to do this, to bring positivity back to being black. Every time black is mentioned, it is always to do with negative stuff, if Africa is mentioned, it’s almost always something negative. For me, New York Fashion Week is one of the greatest platforms, we’re bringing down Black Angels. When we talk about Angels, it is positive and anytime black is mentioned it is almost always negative. So the Black Angels is to show the positivity of being black which is Africa. That is the inspiration!”
And lastly one of my favourites was Deanna Michel!
It was a pleasure to be able to interview Deanna M. Laster who creates sophisticated and minimalist designs.
Deanna described the Deanna Michel Woman as:
I am extremely excited to see what Oxford Fashion Studio has to offer this season.
