NEO-HERERO

In 2018 I was selected a one of twenty Fashion Designer for the BKLYN Fashion Academy. We were tasked to create and showcase a collection, inspired by the Herero Women of Namibia and incorporating cutting-edge wearable technology provided by Microsoft.

My goal for this collections was to create mix NYC nightlife with various elements from the Herero Tribe and Namibia. Due to Namibia being a country in southwest Africa, is distinguished by the Namib Desert along its Atlantic Ocean I selected my hues (Golden Desert | Walvis Bay Blu) for this collection. Additionally I added the Herero's tribe admiration for cattle culture by tying in horns and other head coverings.
