Over the past few years, the Kancky fashion brand has been through quite a journey and this was the main inspiration behind this collection. Though Kancky was established to provide modern women with tribal-chic clothing, the outfits do not need to be boring or monotonous, just like people think.
The Clarity collection is one that expresses a complete understanding of what the Kancky brand represents, in terms of their fun and unconventional designs.
“Finally gaining understanding of what the Kancky brand represents, who I am as a woman, who the ideal Kancky woman is and what she stands for, I can confidently say I have Clarity; one that is synonymous with crystal clear water.” - Nkechi Hilda Nwafor.
Only sustainable hand-painted and hand-dyed fabrics were used for this collection, and this is one of the things that makes it unique. The colour splash patterns, exuberant hues as well as the symmetrical patterns of the prints were used to create a striking effect for the designs.
Most of the designs in this collection are also in trend, and this created a high level of affinity for these pieces to modern women. Designs such as flared sleeves, ruched style, tiered sleeves, high-low, bishop sleeves and many more were utilised in this collection.
“It goes beyond just creating designs that boost confidence in our women; how we come about these finished pieces (in terms of materials used and methods of sourcing and production) is of great significance to the Kancky brand." - Nkechi Hilda Nwafor.
