CFW 2009: Shakad
Another collection that impressed me was that of the Shakad line. Designed by Shanika Burnett and incorporating African textiles, the collection was made up of pure Caribbean aesthetics- lots of bright colours, exoticism- and was impressively eco-friendly.
Made from mostly cotton, the collection had an a notable tie&dye motif, but in its use, managed to not be trite or simplistic.
