Twenty year old fashion design graduate Chelsey Wilson has created a fashion video for her graduate range called The Story of a Girl. The same range was shown at Cape Town Fashion Week which led her to be named one of three winners of Foschini FastTrack, an initiative started by African Fashion International and Foschini in conjunction with the Cape Town Fashion Council.
What the Elizabeth Galloway Academy student loves about fashion is “being able to tell a story through handicraft and layering, both of textures and materials and contextual ideas. Clothing design for me is a way to escape the reality of everyday life and grasp a sense of frivolity and whimsy that comes through daydreaming.” And her future dreams? “To open up a lifestyle store where everything is designed, from fashion and interiors to the food sold in the deli area.”
All the best, Chelsey!
