Sanlam South Africa Fashion Week 2010 Spring Summer Collections: Mantsho

Written By: MIM!—We already shared with you pieces from Palesa Mokubung's fabulous spring summer collection in the article SAFW: Summer Collections. Here are more stylish spring summer pieces from Palesa Mokubung:

SAFW had the following to share about Palesa's inspiration for this collection:
Palesa intensely considers that inspiration is "a moment that can revolutionize your perspective and your sense of being." For her it is somewhat a light that directs one somewhere, which only the bold hearted follow. It is this ingenuity of "the power of creative imagination" that she believes Alexander McQueen possessed! Palesa attended the 10th year anniversary celebrations of the South Africa—Nigeria Bi-National Commission in October / November 2009, where our Deputy President, Kgalema Motlanthr and counter-part the Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Jonathan were among the dignitaries that hosted a series of activities. The impact of having attended such a prestigious cultural event gave her a ‘taste’ the ‘raw’ culture and feel the ‘depth’ of what in reality constitutes, the order of the day for her African siblings—whether through music, lingo or culture. This show attempts to unravel her inspiration on a journey from South Africa to Nigeria and on to the rest of the world; an act she terms "in-spire-action."
