And this is our SA star…

It goes with­out say­ing that one of the night’s big­gest thrills was toast­ing this cre­ation. The en­sem­ble of silk dress, or­ganza shorts, and wool and or­ganza coat, is the col­lab­o­ra­tive cre­ation of SA fash­ion icon Clive Run­dle, and Le­sotho fab­ric de­sign­ers Phutheho Ranooe and Maleeto Monyau, of House of Thethana. “It’s beau­ti­ful work,” said Hamish. And it surely was.

The pat­tern, care­fully de­vel­oped by the three tal­ents, was in­spired by Le­sotho’s rich his­tory of horse­man­ship, and screen­printed with en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly, wa­ter-based inks. The cut, with its blend of tailor­ing and fem­i­nin­ity, typ­i­fied Clive’s aes­thetic – clas­sic and con­sid­ered, with that mag­i­cal touch of the un­ex­pected.

“It’s al­ways ex­cit­ing to be part of the global fash­ion dia­logue,” says the de­signer. “The voice of African fash­ion is pow­er­ful and orig­i­nal, and it in­spires world­wide trends.”
