In the anticipation of the World Design Capital Cape Town 2014, creatives around the city were buzzing from excitement… and consumption of one too many cups of coffee.
According to the city of Cape Town the central theme behind its successful bid, “Live Design. Transform Life”, focused on the role that design can play in social transformation in the city.
Some of the first designers who took the plunge to get involved is Skinny laMinx designer, Heather Moore, and Jessica Harwood of Take Care clothing. Harwood created summery casualwear using two designs from the Skinny laMinx Up, Up & Away fabric collection.
The collaboration of the designers resulted in a summery shell top with a keyhole detail on the back and a pair of simple tapered pants with pockets and a draw cord waistband. The combination of the exultant prints with Harwood’s simple, clean lines resulted in playful casualwear with a light yet sophisticated edge.
