South African art and design greats, past and present, are to unite this summer to create a unique and inspiring fashion collection. Stefania Morland has been approached by the Walter Battiss Company to produce a collection inspired by the work of South Africa’s foremost contemporary artist. The range will be unveiled at this year’s prestigious Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion week on the 9th August 2013 at 9:00pm.
Since establishing the Stefania Morland label in 2005, it has fast become one of South Africa’s prominent fashion labels, creating garments that are often considered to be “works of Art.” It is this design aesthetic that will enhance the influence of Battiss’s artworks, who is considered to be one of the leading artists of the 21st century. Design team Stefania and Shana Morland are very excited and thrilled to be given the opportunity to use his works as an inspiration for their summer 2013/2014 collection. “The abstract shapes and figures of his paintings have given us a strong direction for our upcoming collection. His bold shapes and use of colour are a clear inspiration for this range.”
The alliance, which combines the unexpected embellishment of Stefania Morland, has resulted in a stunning collection that perfectly reconciles form, function and fashion. Stefania Morland is a brand that combines a strong South African heritage and reputation for quality and modern day relevance.
Mercedez-Benz Cape Town fashion week runs from 7th – 10th August 2013 and tickets will be available from Webtickets early next week.
