ELLE MAGAZINE’S RISING STAR FINALIST SINDISO KHUMALO // LAUNCHES SS13 COLLECTIONS

13:01

ELLE’s Rising Star Design finalist Sindiso Khumalo has launched her first womenswear collection for spring/summer 2013. The brand combines bold African graphics with a sophisticated minimalist construction. The concept behind SINDISO KHUMALO is based on how the fashion textiles industry can create new possibilities and future collaborations between Africa and the global fashion environment. Sindiso Khumalo is a South African designer based in both London and Johannesburg. She studied Architecture at University of Cape Town before moving to London to work for award winning architect David Adjaye. Following that she went on to study an MA Textiles at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, graduating with a distinction for her final project. In October 2012 she was shortlisted for the Elle Magazine Rising Star Competition and showcased her debut SS13 collection at the Awards. Describing her aesthetic as “Afro Bauhaus gone Pop”, she brings a heightened sense of colour and a collision of geometric prints into a luxury womenswear brand.
