Abigail Keats, Arise Africa Fashion Week designer 411
Abigail Keats graduated in 2007 and launched her first collection at Audi Fashion Week 2008 as part of the autumn/winter New Generation Designer show. Since then she has showed her spring/summer collection at Joburg Fashion Week in 2008 and her autumn/winter collection at Audi Fashion Week in 2009. Keats has also been invited to showcase in New York, London and Miami, and has been selected as the "designer of the month" in South African Elle magazine and the ‘designer to watch’ in Cosmopolitan magazine.
Keats’ signature style is best described as a sophisticated contemporary art form that plays with the paradox of masculine tailoring, while exaggerating a feminine figure. The focus throughout all her collections is embedded in exerting the power of a woman while magnifying the beauty and grace of her being and form.
Her love for art, self-expression and creation is the inspiration on which all her collections are fashioned.
Abigail Keats is stocked in Must Lust (Cedar Square, Johannesburg), Fizz Clothing (East London), Tzipporah (Plettenburg Bay), Blackbeard & Dare (Cape Town) and Roco Coco (Polokwane). You can also buy privately by contacting Abigail directly.
Abigail will be showing on June 13th, 2009 at Arise Africa Fashion Week.
