Coming off the back of her London Fashion Week presentation, designer Cassie Snelgar of luxury ready to wear label Caslazur showcased her trans-seasonal collection ‘Rocking Rococo’ as part of the New Generation show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
Snelgar, a South African native who calls Hong Kong, Sydney, London and Johannesburg home created the collection to show between London and Sydney and to be relevant to each market. From her extensive travelling, Caslazur emerged out of necessity and comfort. With an education in Architecture and Fine Arts, Snelgar studied Fashion Design at Parson’s New School of Design in New York and has recently been chosen by ELLE UK’s Harriet Steward as her designer to mentor.
The collection combines old worlds craftsmanship with contemporary design. Snelgar creates every original print, inspired by exotic cultures, African folklore and natural phenomena of her birth country.
