TRANS

MBFW Cape Town 2014

 

Trans > the prefix of transcendence -- going beyond neatly outlined social norms and perceptions of reality.

This is where it began. My first collection. It started with the artwork diptych above.

The first is titled, "Perception", the second - "Reality".

It was reflective of a very significant time in my life where my entire view of the world changed, warped, took on a fluid rather than rigid form.

The collection was unisex and the models swapped clothes on stage as an act of performance.

Versatility, gender fluidity -- by now these terms don't need explaining. Then, it really meant something for many who were there.

 

I left behind the comfort of the known, which turned on me and started shouting many voices, "wrong!"

 

All I had for solace, was the stillness of the unknown

 

I started over, writing a story that was my own 

 

I was a blank white page.

Interesting to note: At this point, I named my brand, "Blanc". Later, I changed it to "Blank", first the label, then my official surname due to it's personal significance and currently my brand is eponymous.
