Can you speak African?

The African soul captured in a bow tie

The vibrant colours and personalities of Africa are fascinating. I was born in Botswana, spent a lot of time with family in Zimbabwe, finished my schooling in Namibia; and now reside in South Africa.

My inspiration emanates from the vivacious Herero people, the beautiful geometric shapes of the Ndebele, the earthy tones of the Tswana and the electrifying energy of South African street culture.

Swank aspires to incorporate these elements into its designs. We are excited to add the sporty to our looks, which is prominent in pantsula dance.

If you have ever wondered whether you can speak African – now is the time to give it a shot. Try it out. Being African is more than just the colour of one’s skin, it’s where your heart and soul is at peace.
