For ‘Kuamka: Awakening’, the Sania Maskatiya design team draw inspirations from the spirit of Africa through the use of African geometry, aesthetics, culture and landscape to capture a continental awakening. With signature custom designed Sania Maskatiya prints, the collection is based in a variety of fabrics including crepes, chamois and organza with sequined embellishments and structured cuts. The collection harnesses the raw energy, resilience and beauty of the African continent and embarks on a journey filled with vibrant colours, vivid earthy landscapes and natural imagery.
Speaking about her collection for PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week, Sania Maskatiya said “Designing a new collection is always an exciting experience. It gives us the chance to experiment and implement new ideas; the process of seeing ones thoughts manifest into reality within a collection is always enthralling. I am particularly looking forward to our PSFW showcase as we bring our menswear to the ramp, which we have been designing and retailing at our stores since we launched as a brand, but have not until now, brought it onto the ramp.”
