Runway to Red Carpet! The ATCL Collective IV at Arise Fashion Week is Winning.

We love seeing runway trends make their way into real life proving that clothes can be as functional as they are beautiful. In the wake of the recently concluded Arise Fashion Week where the ATCLCollectiveIV presented three womenswear designers, we spotted some stylish curvy girls putting their spin on the clothes straight off the catwalk.

This red half coat by Manoshia x The Garment factory was spotted on the runway for the ATCLCollectiveIV. Celebrity model Bikiya Graham Douglas wore it with an orange lace dress lined with adire from The Garment Factory. ATCL founder, Latasha Ngwube, opted for a more conservative approach, pairing hers with a retro boubou by Rock MJL, as well as blue and black perspex earrings by Rokus for Loza Maleombo (also from the Arise fashion week runway). Incidentally, the adire fabric of the long dress is also from the Garment Factory.

 

 

It seems you cannot go wrong in sequins as this rose gold sequined dress also from Manoshia x The Garment Factory hit all the right notes on and off the runway. Lifestyle reporter Safina Fifi looked amazing in the adire tiered number for the third day of Arise Fashion Week. She opted for messy bed hair and soft nude lips as opposed to the sleek bob and dark lip color as seen on the runway model.

We will keep our eyes open and you updated as more of the ATCL Collective pieces make it off the runway to curvy fashion lovers worlwide.
