“This collection is reflective of all aspects of tradition and culture. We strive to always show diversity in our work through demonstrating architecture in motion, which is informed by keeping abreast with the latest trends, pop culture, and societal discussions,” says Quiteria Kekana, co-designer at Quiteria & George. “We found it of vital importance to close the gap and drive a dialogue about youth and women empowerment. In a world that is driven by patriarchy, dissolution and imbalances, it is crucial as creatives to recall the disempowered and place their discourse in the forefront.”

George Malelu, co-designer at Quiteria & George, adds: “To strive and find the warrior in today’s young women, the aesthetic of our designs focuses on the pre and post Democracy to create the synergy between the two women, because these generations feed off from each other. This is for women as they continue to build, love and nurture by displaying insurmountable strength.”
