When I was approached by an upcoming fashion designer to have my products featured as part of her collection I was humbled, yet unsure of how it would ‘fit’. Shows how much of a rookie I am to the game, heh, but I had a bag of faith in Taslima Khan and seeing her creations evolve from idea to sketch to physical artistry has been quite the learning curve!
The name of her first collection is ‘Girl Gang’ and is inspired by ‘A world Without Men’ – a book by Helmut Newton. Our crimson Hooks feature on Silver hi-tops.
I’d love to wax lyrical about the fabrics, concepts and craftsmanship, but it’s a better idea to contact Taslima via Twitter, so she can explain her hip-hop and sports inspired work with far greater clarity than I could ever hope to :)
No stranger to modelling herself, Taz is also professional dancer and has appeared at at least 2 exhibitions Shoeture have held this year. Look out for her in our upcoming videos, ‘Move It’ and ‘Ladies say what?’
