LFDW DAY 1: SOPHIE ZINGA

Sophie Zinga's Spring/Summer 2016 collection showcased a juxtaposition of West African culture and influences.

This season, the designer used original handwoven fabrics and techniques by merging traditional West African handwoven fabric to create body-con pieces that perfectly sculpt the feminine figure. The collection also featured hand-dyed silk chiffon as well as a top that was created using 250 individually hand-painted cowry shells.
