Black Ballerina Brings Lookbook to Life

We love receiving collaboration submissions here at replay254 so when we came across womenswear brand called ‘Designs By Prelim’ by Zimbabwean designer, Preline Martha, we immediately fell in love with the looks.

The African-inspired brand teamed up with talented ballet dancer, Abiola Efunshile, as they wanted to showcase a rare sight of an African ballerina in African Prints. The collection itself is heavily inspired by prints from the Ndebele Tribe in Zimbabwe/South Africa.

“A Prelim design is always colourful driven with eye-catching prints,” says Martha.

The brand is inspired by an afrobeats culture that is currently arising. The designer’s style is an eclectic mix of a few African prints and urban looks.

Take a sneak-peek of the collection below.
