The Year Of Design For Craig Port

As Cape Town celebrates its new status as the World Design Capital for 2014, acclaimed fashion designer Craig Port has labeled 2014 as ‘The Year Of Design’. For the remainder of the year, Craig Port will be collaborating with various likeminded creatives from a multitude of design platforms in order to showcase the best of local talent.

For his first collaboration Craig Port teamed up with Jonathan Kope and Jarred Figgins who shot an amazing fashion editorial. See the pictures below:

 
 

On working with KOPE | FIGGINS, Craig said: “I am a huge fan of KOPE | FIGGINS fresh approach to photography. Their images are unexpectedly beautiful and effortlessly edgy and I was really excited to see their interpretation of my work. Jarred and Jonathan’s style really compliments my design aesthetic which is fundamental to the success of any creative collaboration”

The shoot was conceptualised by Jonathan Kope and Jarred Figgins and styled by fashion editor and freelance stylist Bee Diamondhead.

The images are a true celebration of the edgy yet polished work coming out of South Africa and selected images were featured as an editorial exclusive on international online magazine Fucking Young! Click here to see the editorial exclusive: http://fuckingyoung.es/craig-port/
