What fabric have you used?

We have used satin, chiffon, scuba, polycotton and organza.

Which is your favourite piece and why?

The multi layered shirt- the detail on the waist adds drama to the garment. The organza pants and crop- the details of the garments are subtle but very appealing, the silhouette is flattering to all body shapes.

Describe monochrome dressing?

It is power dressing, the colours do not shout but make a strong fashion statement.

What are your monochrome fashion rules?

More is more, you can get away with more, like layering, mixing textures and silhouettes.

When designing the collection, where did you draw inspiration from?

Interior design and architecture influence the pieces we make.

What would you say are key fashion items to mastering the monochrome look?

A black or white shirt is a staple, culottes/flared crop pants, a blazer/biker jacket and a t-shirt.

What do you love most about Skip’s new Perfect Care for dark & white clothing?

The preservation of clothing whether dark or white is great because you don’t have to keep replacing that dark pair of jeans you adore and you can remove stains from your favourite white shirt; the range is called perfect care meaning it is the best product to keep your clothing in tip-top shape.

South African designers, such as yourself, are really finding unique prominence within the fashion industry. What do you see the future holding for young South African fashion designers?

The future for SA designers even outside of fashion is booming, the world is taking notice of the beautiful work/talent that SA possesses. There is still a lot that needs to change but the future looks promising.
