Recently heralded as “Next Best Designer” by Essence.com & “BreakOut Designer” by Time Out New York,
British Zimbabwean Designer Farai Simoyi is at it again with the presentation of her Spring/Summer 2012
Collection, shown here at this year’s NYFW at the Helen Mills Theater on Saturday Sept. 10th. Aptly titled Desert Oasis, the collection embodies that very definition; a fruitful flourishing where resources are scarce, or at times, seemingly gone. In a desert like industry, Farai Simoyi is the force that thrivesÂ in such harsh climates, and in turn, gracefully produces life through a natural Bohemian collection.
Farai Simoyi creates the spirit of Woman, Warrior, Wayward Traveller, as well as heart, all the while representingÂ femininity through her rich use of soft/steel aesthetics.
