Thembisile’s collection was slightly hard work being mostly made up of what looked like black sack cloth. Not sure if this is a recessionary move to cut down on fabric costs or a post-feminist statement. Either way its better than another bridal/couture collection (which have largely been done away with this fashion week season at last). This was a bold move from a new designer, which makes the work interesting as a political statement. However we still don’t have much of an idea of what she can do beyond the self-imposed limitations of this approach. She’s got our attention though.
