FALL IN LOVE: A Gavin Rajah Resort 2017 gown.

Mesmerised by the masquerade of clothing, his passion for the palette of colour inspired his artistic interpretation within the fashion industry.

One of the greatest challenges Rajah has faced in the local industry is the concept of insular fashion and his recent experience abroad in the Harvard Global Leadership Programme has strongly influenced his perception of fashion in South Africa, and how we can grow and change as an industry.

From a global perspective his thought process has shifted and he is expanding his business in the international sphere.

Rajah’s own passions transcend the borders of fashion and when he is not designing, he can be found enjoying music or cooking up a culinary storm. Inspired by international symbols relating to love, his collection embodies the awakening of kindness in the depths of despondence, encouraging us to fall in love all over again. Using the concept of stars, he aims to unlock an experiential flight of fantasy, in a world that is desperate with disillusion and encourage his audience to unite, recognise the good in one another and be enveloped in this escapism.
