Fall Into Winter & Spring Into Summer! | Capsule Collection 2019 July 15, 2019 12:26
ALL SEASONS IN ONE DAY | Capsule Winter~Summer 2019 June 6, 2019 14:32
The capsule wardrobe dates back to the 1970’s to a London base boutique called Wardrobe. It is said to be a collection of few essential items of clothing that won’t necessarily outdate provided it is styled well with seasonal pieces.
This season KHIOMA essentially condenses her vision for this collection & introduces a take on her own interpretation of a minimalist, limited edition collection that encapsulates essential & influential pieces transcending seasons & trends for 2019. Khioma herself has always believed that less is so much more in quality & design. She understands that the future woman is fashion conscious, modern & inspired by art & tries to capture the spirit of the collection that is to be enjoyed wherever you are in the world.
Living in places like Cape Town where Khioma conceptualizes & produces her collections, one has no choice but to adapt in experiencing all seasons in one day! While her minimalist lifestyle is gaining traction, the trend seems to now be transcending into the area she holds dearest to her vocation, the clothing closet. With a faint & far cry of unworn & often low quality items, Khioma’s vision is rather a mini selection of versatile pieces that you will totally always want to wear. A unique combination of items you already lovingly own & new quality items that you have intentionally shopped for a few times a season.
KHIOMA’s capsule collection represents more time, money & energy for the things that matter most in life. By buying & choosing well you save on frivolous items that add up & get in the way of defining & understanding your true style. The idea is to own garments that can be worn in different ways therefore wearing individual items often & where quality fabric & yarn is chosen & is well made, will continue to look good with & in-spite of wear. But what we’re most excited for is the brand's move towards greater inclusivity of all aspect sustainable & the collection's staying power of high quality aesthetics. In the 21st century the general consensus is all about embracing the issues around sustainability, by being a predominantly feminine industry, it is a feminist issue after all.
Women in the fashion industry are now reclaiming their freedom as independent curators. Pushing through as entrepreneurs where they can learn & teach each other new & evolutionary skills. Khioma is mostly proud of her relatively new hand made knitwear range for women by women. In accent colours of mustard & forest green, as well as in monotones of white, ivory, sand, black, brown & grey. With each style interchangeable, so that pieces always co-ordinate & compliment each other in colour & in style!
The Linen Jumpsuit - Jump into summer time! Cruise all day & dance into the night. March 18, 2019 10:31Inspired by the Mediterranean palette, a daydream lifestyle of graceful movement in a linen fabrication for lazy afternoon lunches around the city.. The slick silhouette eases effortlessly into the evening for a staying power of androgynous go-to uniformity that boasts both hard work & playful adventure for the modern day woman.
The Wrap Dress - Keeping fresh in hot summers. March 18, 2019 10:30I step off the path & into the trees.. Following my own true north like the migrating birds. I touch the growing tips of the ferns gently as I walk. The wild magic of plants maintain the magic of place through these living green layers of perception. This isn’t just a wood but a living ecosystem, I am not in it but part of it. The dandelions offer up a wish of health & the super green all around promises wealth. When I leave I carry moss in my lungs & birds in my ears. I feel at home in this forest - it knows me. The water feels soft & clean like this pure linen dress, wrapped around my body.

The Cotton Web Crochet Top - Hold me close to the morning light. March 18, 2019 10:21
Look into the sun, dawn is coming open your eyes. There is a rhythm in which things pace, where the lights don’t move & the colours don’t fade. Where there's nothing but dreams & endless summer waves.

Reminiscing last weeks awesome early morning photo shoot with two local professionals, on location at an abandoned fort around the Simon's Town Naval Base. Gratitude to these two creatives for inviting me on board an incredible photo shoot! I had such fun dressing & styling the talented musician Ashleigh Pitchen! Who has proven to become an excellent brand ambassador for the Khioma label & the 'made by hand for you' brand. Working with photographer Jared Brain - watching & experiencing his particular style of work from behind the scenes. We are all anticipating the edited images with much excitement!! You guys rocked!

September is the month of springtime here in South Africa. The photo shoot for this up & coming summer season was so fresh & exciting!! I love the inspirational theme.......showing how you can just move and live in my clothing designs! A nineteen hour day of non stop from waking up to packing up, setting up, make up, dressing up & shooting! Shooting, shooting & some more photo shooting! The location scouting was super fun. We live in such a magnificent country! The weather was spot on in the deep south on that day.. Sunny, cool & crisp! Cheers to Cape Town! My body felt broken but my soul delights! I cannot stop thinking what a fantastic team I had on board with me to frolic & play on the mountains literally edging the southernmost tip of the African continent & right by the sea in the African sun rays, where life feels as wild as it gets! A phenomenal bunch of artists. Both beautiful & talented! I'm super lucky & most grateful to the gods for sending such good vibes & luck my way..
