“Being in Italy was such a motivating experience and will always push me to keep striving to make exceptionally beautiful clothing. I think it is very important to be exposed to how things are done on the international fashion scene.”
Sadie Bosworth Smith, the designer for label Sadie Bosworth, will be participating in this year’s DFF with a collection that is quite different from what she presented last year.
Her design aesthetic is influenced by the history of fashion, traditional techniques and handcrafts. Her eclectic style ranges from bohemian to classic.
Being part of last year’s mentorship programme has impacted positively on her career. She gain exposure to a wider setting and a bigger audience and enabled her to develop skills in professional communication, pattern making, costing, and quality control.
Sadie Bosworth dressed Nomalanga Shozi for the Durban July this year.
