A firm favourite of mine, congratulations goes to Tamara Cherie Dyson!
One of the finalists in a competition that has helped kickstart the careers of a number of South Africa’s biggest designers, the ELLE Rising Star Award gives young designers the opportunity to launch their own label and benefit from a mentorship programme that will equip them with the fashion, industry and business knowledge they need to turn talent into success.
Cherie Dyson’s showcase formed part of the Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, showcased last night at the 2014Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa. Held at the Melrose Arch Precinct, #MBFWAfrica opened with a celebration of African couture, featuring Kibonen, a Cameroonian national bringing Cameroon couture to the world, and Zimbabwean born designer Intisaar Mukadam’s label, Intisaar.
With a chic collection, featuring different shades of whites, asymmetrical hems and glossy panels, Cherie Dyson’s collection was a celebration of feminine glamour.
MBWAFrica will run till Saturday, 1st November 2014, at the Melrose Arch Precinct.
