It’s the 2017 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week holding in Cape Town, South Africa, with it comes the best of fashion designs from Africa by African designers.
And with an elegant collection of fashionable pieces in stunning fabrics come an interplay of modern designs mixed with retro African shoulder strap sling purses, layered neck pieces and handcrafted bamboo umbrellas all from Mozambican designer, Taibo Barca.
Taibo’collection brings to the fore designs we all like in simple, flattering and elegant pieces and in colors that are deep and eye catching.
There’s just something about Barca’s collection that you can’t help falling in love with. I guess it’s how he paid attention to all the necessary details for a woman’s body and yet makes it so comfortable and easy: the tiny waist line cinched together by a trendy matching belt, flared skirts that give the hips more width, a flowing gown that gives the illusion of long legs and sexy, ruffles and layers, the stunning and finely cut jackets and then the little accessories that aren’t much and yet stand out, like the small shoulder strap sling purses.
Taibo Barca’s collection says “do not stress yourself, you can go easy and chic on these finely crafted slippers”.
