Mina Nawe Collab
Mina Nawe is a fashion and art collaboration by stylist, Slomokazi, andphotographer, Paul Shiakallis.
Their projects showcases modern African style and beauty by exploring gender roles, identity and affordability. As a stylistic dynamic, models are cast as reflections of each other, evident in the clothing and colours worn, creating a balanced and engaging aesthetic. The items worn are chiefly thrifted, or vintage, to depict the effects of the current economic climate on style, to create a link between the past and the present; and, to tell novel tales of equality and androgyny of the contemporary African aesthetic.
