Last Sunday, 15 September, South African fashion brand Mercia Ramagaga founded by designer Mercia Ramagaga over a decade ago, was showcased at London Fashion Week 2019, at the London Royal Opera House.
The name of the collection showcased at LFW 2019 was Tribute to Love is Happiness, a title inspired by from the philosophy of doing what you love ultimately culminating in happiness.
The collection is a representation of the colours, styles, patterns and fabrics that are loved by the designer. Dominating the collection is black and white neutrals with a touch of rich blue.
Art is part of the inspiration for this collection, reflecting Mercia’s interpretation of different daily emotions converted into a creative masterpiece. After many years in the industry, this collection is a celebration of all the years of joy, peace, art creation and sensuality that have been invested in sketching, making and retailing the perfect garment leading to fulfillment, enjoyment and happiness.
On the highlights of the week and show, Mercia said: “This has been a memorable and exciting experience. It has been interesting to see and learn how the international markets execute and organize globally recognized fashion weeks. From admin to preparation, I’ve seen that South Africa has a few leaps to make in reaching this type of a global stage production. I look forward to bringing home the jewels and knowledge of my surreal experience. My new shoe line also made its debut on the runway and I am so happy and cannot wait to have them in store for everyone to shop!”.
