Womenswear brand Nonnistics has unveiled its new collection tagged The Black Diamond – a monochrome themed collection inspired by the brand’s deep African heritage and love of the beautiful black skin.
According to the brand, the collection is also inspired by; “the irrepressible truth about the African Fashion Industry which has clearly risen from the dark ashes of obscurity to the clear rays of the sunlight. The continent of Africa as undeveloped and struggling as it may remain the world’s repository of ‘diamonds’ – rich in human and natural resources including the physical diamonds.”
According to the creative director Nonye:
Our fashion industry while making huge strides yet remains deeply untapped. Diamonds are found deep in the mud bed of oceans. To reach them, you would have to feel the dirt of the mud and wetness of the waters but when you have them, you have great value! And this is why my collection is named The Black Diamond collection.
