THWASA: The Light of the New Moon
Thwasa is a Zulu word meaning ‘the light of the new moon’, which refers to the journey that initiates (who have received the calling to heal) in South Africa undertake in their training to become traditional healers. It is an incarnation of nature and the ancestral world. It is a spiritual journey. In the same vein, this collection is a representation of my return to my true calling - my return to fashion design - and represents the journey I have undertaken. It is a depiction of my heritage influenced by South African traditions and silhouettes, infused with colours inspired by the moonlight.
