AFRICAN STYLE STORY | SOBER | ANGELA DEMONTIGNY 
 
Experience Native Canadian Chic! The High Commission of Canada is presenting designer Angela De Montigny. DeMontigny is one of the leading, authentic, aboriginal designers in North America, attracting the interest of accomplished singers, performers, and other high-profile personalities from across Canada and the U.S.
 
From Mozambique, fashion designer Carla Pinto’s African Style story ready-to-wear Collection combines intelligent design with elegance and comfort. Pinto, who is Portuguese, worked in branding and communication until drastically changed her direction. Looking back, she says it’s clear that fashion design was always her calling.
Pinto’s house is all about print. In a market where “African prints” are numerous and have lost their sense of modernity, Pinto manages to refresh and revitalise. Her secret? Adaption by way of personalisation, providing “a fusion of cultural elements. “There’s a story and a team of designers and illustrators behind each print, and that is what I believe makes them unique and modern,” she says.
 
Sober in no newcomer on the luxury fashion scent – her collection is inspired by the modern-day Africans. She captures everything that is rich and precious about our South African heritage.
She presents us with an African Fashion viewpoint.
‘With all the advancements, in technology, politics, and social networking we see today, I feel that it has somehow changed us as Africans and I believe our fashion should follow suit. Says Tshepo Mafokwane ‘I want to design an African look that is easy to commit to, for all of us…black, white or anyone who calls Africa home.’
