He has a mastery for mixing colour and pattern, but there’s still sub clause stacked against sub clause. ┬áHe says: ‘I have always believed that a garment is irresistible not only because of the label but rather because of the love and attention in it’s composition.’


He makes it easy to keep your cool with a simple shot of bright energy.


And creates clothes that love the female form.


Oh how I’d love to see Kate Middleton in this one..

His clothes sing like a mezzo soprano over an African drum beat, gently crooning there’s nothing shallow about feeling good, confidence is the most attractive thing – just go out and have fun..
