This Thursday, Okayafrica will host the official opening of our artist collaboration with renowned South African designer Daniel Ting Chong. The collection, which features a series of multicoloured graphics on t-shirts, a crew neck sweater and a headscarf, draws its inspiration from various national African flags.
“National flags are often used as a beacon of hope, and a symbol of what a country stands for. A flag as a visual representation of its people–and to distinguish it from other nations. By having the same flag, Africa can have a common symbol to bring us closer together–at home or abroad,” says Daniel.
The collection is available exclusively at Okayafrica’s pop-up space at 70 Juta Street in Braamfontein, Johannesburg between the 29th of September and the 8th of October.
Join us Thursday, from 6pm-8pm, for complimentary drinks and an exclusive first look at the collection.
