Dropping colour in favour of a strict monochrome palette, monochrome fashion seems to be the biggest trend of the moment.
Three of South Africa’s top designers; Prime Obsession, Imprint ZA and Lukhanyo Mdingi; showcased their Skip Monochrome Collection at the COSMO Fashion Festival.
Their limited edition pieces are currently on sale at the Skip Monochrome Pop-up Shop in Sandton and all the money will be donated to The Creative Leaders Trust. The trust assists current and prospective students at FEDISA to uplift the future of local fashion.

The quality of the work on show is compelling proof of the incredible talent the local fashion industry has to offer and, as a passionately South African brand, we want to boost the visibility and viability of that talent.
One of the big challenges of monochrome clothing is that, without proper care, the quality quickly begins to spoil – dark clothing fades, the lighter pieces get a yellowy look, and the fabric degenerates.
Skip recently launched the Perfect Care range of washing liquids specifically designed for white and dark clothing.
“Whatever your monochrome staples – whether it’s your favourite LBD, a faux fur black coat or your comfiest pair of white jeans – this liquid can keep your items newer for longer,”
Caroline Blumrick, Brand Manager of Skip South Africa.
