ART AND FASHION

When art and fashion unites, it produces something completely awe inspiring, and choosing South African fashion designers to represent a particular artist, naturally delivers results that are breath taking.  With Stefania Morland representing the Walter Battiss Company to produce a collection inspired by the work of South Africa’s foremost contemporary artist, we must expect it to be jaw dropping beautiful!   Those of you who are lucky to be on the list of a select few, try keeping your jaws together when the range is unveiled at this year’s prestigious Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion week, starting on the 7th August 2013 at the Cape Town International Convention centre at the foreshore.
 
Stefania Morland established her label in 2005, and excelled at becoming one of South Africa’s most prominent and iconic fashion labels with a distinctly dramatic flare, almost theatrical. No wonder it is often referred to as “works of Art.” With  Walter Battiss being perceived as one of the century's greatest  artists, it is a match made in heaven, and the inspiration for Morlands's summer 2013/2014 collection.
 
The abstract shapes and figures of his paintings have given us a strong direction for our upcoming collection. His bold shapes and use of colour are a clear inspiration for this range.”
