Last week, Cape Town designer and fashion fundi Ayesha Kamalie launched her own concept store, titled AKLIVITI, in Wynberg.

Her studio and boutique shows her range of art, decor and fashion items.

Kamalie describes her style of dress as an effortless elegance, with a touch of boho chic.

She explains that individuals should subscribe to their own standards of modesty, but offered general tips and advice for young women interested in the trend:

  • layer form-fitting items with looser pieces such as kimonos.
  • play around with headgear and customise the coverage that works best for you.
  • base your outfits with polo necks and tops that reach the mid-thigh.
  • have a good foundation of nude-coloured undergarments.
  • add lighter fabrics in warmers seasons.
  • incorporate vintage pieces into outfits.
