When our creative, entrepreneur, and educator  Sinikiwe Stephanie Dhliwayo  (pictured above in our new Surf Sweater set, coming soon) reached out about rounding up a few friends to take our Spring Collection for a spin, we were all in. 

A few weeks later, the group gathered at  The Rockaway Hotel  with photographer  Allie Holloway  and makeup artist  Deepti Sadhwani  to make magic happen.

“I am driven to create artwork that showcases the totality of the human experience. Namely, that of BIPOC folks that celebrate that we are here — that we are breathing.”
      — Sinikiwe Dhliwayo

“The Rockaway Hotel served as a beautiful backdrop for creating these images and allowed me to execute on the aforementioned vision.”
      — Sinikiwe Dhliwayo
