Vuwani|Rise The Spring Summer collection by South Africa’s Craig Jacobs Debuts

As Africans we at Stylebyjae love to promote our African heritage and  fashion in anyway possible, therefore we get excited when we stumble on such creative prowess of Africans. This look book has a story  to it…According to the Label “It is said by the Vhatatsindi, or the People of the Pool, that there are many mysteries around the sacred body over which they hold watch.

Three rivers flow into the lake and yet it never overflows.
When you throw an object into its waters, the spirits will catch it and place it on the banks to be discovered the next day.

And, at night, you can hear their ancestors drumming beneath its waters. Vuwani | Rise, the SS17 Lookbook from Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs sees the ancients emerge from below its waters to discover a landscape rive by the great drought which plagues our land.”
