One of the 6 designers from Convoy in Melville, Heart & Heritage, were announced last Thursday as the winner of SA Fashion Week Lufthansa’s 1st Best Collection.
Heart & Heritage is a lovingly hand crafted, Johannesburg produced clothing range, designed by Lesley Whitter.
With a focus on wearability, unique details, comfort and flattering fits, Heart & Heritage aims to reflect through fashion, the confident, independent and stylish women who wear our garments.
Lesley treasures the beauty in the traditional process of crafting a garment from a concept. Each garment is drafted onto paper, thoughtfully sampled and finally brought to life by local hands.
The Lufthansa 1st Best Collections is a significant platform for emerging designers with particularly strong signatures who have not been in the industry for more than five years. Designers were selected by the SA Fashion Week board based on rigorous criteria including craftsmanship and entrepreneurial skill and are supported by Lufthansa.
Heart & Heritage won a travel seminar to Berlin Fashion Week in June 2016 courtesy of Lufthansa German airlines and SAFW!
