The editorial for the 2016 Angolan fashion week- shot by photographer Patricia Arujo- showcases the best aspects of both universal and regional culture. Arujo beautifully captures the exciting variations of pattern and texture of the work to highlight its organic appeal. Mixing the traditional designs of the country, with a modern yet vintage fusion to create a general indulgent wardrobe; each design seems specifically crafted for every occasion: whether one is dressing for one attends a party, or just wishes to casually slay the streets. This colorful, joyous celebration of culture and design shapes a beautiful, versatile appareled experience. Check out the 2016 editorial below.
