Personal Project- Contemporary south africian dress

I was asked to come up with some design ideas for Shade who commits herself to the FXU South Africian group at univeristy. She gave me 3 traditional south africian fabrics to look at and said she wanted to make south africian dress more modern and contemporary. Westernising it so the dresses arn't as long as taditional wear. Its a rather interesting project to take on and its nice to do something for others that mean something.

In terms of inspiration i was thinking something rather tailored, fitted and figure hugging to emphasis the curves and i need another element to make the design ideas more interesting.... but what...hmm.
