28th of November I attended the ‘look book’ launch of the new range from Elppag brand.This is a fun, edgy and fashion forward brand with a unique take on all things denim and leather. This year’s theme is centered around the industrial revolution.
Elppag brand showcased their unique denim line at Durban Fashion Fair 2015
We spoke to head creative designer Khethamahle Kweyama, about his inspiration. He said ‘I saw a gap in the market, so many people wear denim everyday, but No designer in SA designs custom made denim, that fits different shapes and sizes that exists in SA’
He designs everyday wear, that is form fitting and accentuates women’s curves. I saw a lot of interesting pieces from the Spring/Summer 15 range, hook metal on jackets where you can hook your backpack, dresses plastered in paint and a new take on dungaree with leather straps.
Elppag also makes custom made leather goods from bags to shoes. Everything is hand made.
The Price range for shoes is from R700, depending on type of leather, and dresses from R400. He sells straight out of his studio. Some of his work can be seen at KZNSA buzz art and craft shop
