I am so elated!! my cruise collection titled "Sidewalks are Runways" is finally here!! my exhibition/sample sale is on the 19th of december 2010.
My inspiration for the Wana Sambo ‘Sidewalks are Runways’ Cruise Collection ’10 was drawn from the streets. On the sidewalks, you see every form of creativity, style and persona expressed through people’s outfits. This collection can be taken straight from the lookbook into a woman’s closet because it has a piece for every occasion. Work, play, boat cruise, chilling-at-friend’s, out to dinner, or just hanging out. I wanted to show the versatility of a collection with it still telling a story.
The shoot (for the lookbook which will be updated soon) describes the unspoken rivalry between humans, the quest for achieving more wealth, success or fame than another, which leaves us constantly on our toes or just head strong against one another. Here it’s the case of two friends who constantly want to be ahead of each other without realizing they end up doing the same things but expressing them differently. . .
