FEATURE: The sacred lake of the Venda tribe inspires Johannesburg-based fashion label Fundudzi’s AW2016 collection

Fundudzi is a Johannesburg fashion label created by designer Craig Jacobs. Drawing inspiration from the sacred lake of the Venda tribe, found in South Africa, Jacobs takes a naturalistic approach, color palette wise, by using colors reflected in the local landscape and wildlife. The mystical aura and traditional fabrics of their culture flavor the aesthetic of Fundudzi’s AW16 collection, as well as the scenic backdrop of the lookbook. See the AW16 collection, below.
