Dax Martin reinventing Afro-inspired swimwear

Durban-based designers Dax Martin and Gayle Johnston are making waves on the runway with their sexy Afro-inspired swimwear collection, with the most recent being at Cape Town fashion week.

Wanting to create something using African elements, they gave a modern and fun edge to the traditional side of African prints, drawing inspiration from traditional beadwork. They also changed the traditional primary colours to brights, and incorporated a gradient fade, which has summer written all over it.

Over a shoot at a landmark Dolphin Coast hotel, Dax also told us how fashion was his destiny, with his mother owning a clothing business, and being surrounded by style, models, shoots and shows from the age of six.

With local designers proudly staying true to African flavours, it's no wonder their designs are such a hit with the rainbow nation.

Don't miss these designers making a splash on Top Billing this Thursday at 7:30pm on SABC3.
