Self-taught streetwear designer Andile Cele of Dope Store, shared his frustration, disappointment and confusion after his collection got pulled off the runway moments before showcasing at SA Fashion Week in April. During the behind the scenes coverage, which was supposed to be a part 2 in depth look into the downtown based Joburg designer, we got the disappointing news that he was no longer showcasing.
A number of designers ascended up to the Sandton City roof top for a week of fashion, hoping to catch the eyes of fashion buyers and elevating their brands and showing off their workmanship as a designer. But this was not the case for Mr Cele. After months of preparations, he was shockingly left in the cold by his friend and colleague in the fashion industry, Lucilla Booyzen – founder of SA Fashion Week.
Cele says he is planning on showcasing his SS18 collection at Soweto Fashion Week instead.
