Through his work as a stylist Gavin Mikey Collins is on the continual search for what’s next. Looking out for the future has brought with it an interest in the emerging talent that abounds in South Africa. One of Gavin’s aims is to remind South Africans of the talent at home instead of constantly looking outwards.¬†This series of images features local fashion designers on the up who have piqued his interest on their way through design school.

Shot on campus in front of a backdrop of fabric cut-offs from the sewing room floor, models Feloosh and Terence wear looks pulled straight from the runways at various graduate fashion shows in Cape Town, showcasing some of the most talented design students from across the Western Cape. The shoot is a nod to the experimentation required in the pursuit of something new.
