Graphic pattern is one of the biggest trends of Spring/Summer 2013 and for those of us who want to rock this trend with designs inspired by Africa, Sindiso Khumalo’s new collection which combines digitally designed graphic design print and her African heritage with a sophisticated minimalist construction.
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.
