Just in time for the cooler temps ahead, designer, stylist, and fashion alchemist, Ashaka Givens, has released her Fall & Winter ’16/’17 collection. Appropriately titled “Zulu – Spirit of a Warrior,” the collection consists of pieces that will flawlessly complete your look from head to toe.
Inspired by the beautiful crowns that the Zulu women wear, the head-turning Zulu Beret is handmade from chenille yarn. The blouse, which is also an Ashaka Givens original, is a crochet lace while the pencil skirt is made in this season’s signature Zulu print, reminiscent of the lovely bead work of South Africa.
When asked what inspired the new offerings, Ashaka shared the following:
“Back in early spring, I was definitely having my own Solange “For Us By Us” moment while contemplating this new season. It’s entitled “Zulu – Spirit of a warrior.” In these days and times, it’s important that a woman feels empowered, fly, and most importantly, fearless!”
