In a showcase alongside 13 other countries in an increasingly interrelated world, we aim to show how South Africa is asserting a new identity through fashion.
The work of three designers are presented - all of whom imbue the next wave of South African self-expression through well researched, unclichéd, and ambitious design handwriting.
As the title of the installation suggests, the designers' work manages to look back with a view to looking forward - all with clear ideas about what to leave behind, and what to take with them.
Designers include: Adriaan Kuiters & Jody Paulsen, Akedo, MaXhosa by Laduma
