Today we celebrating local design duo Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen, also know as AKJP. Apart from designing their own clothing line, Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen also own the AKJP Collective. A concept store in Cape Town brought to you to showcase local SA design at its best.

The duo was one of three local South African designers to be selected as one of the finalists in the Who Is On Next? Dubai scouting project launched by Vogue Italia and dedicating to discovering design talent from the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

I recently attended AKJP’s AW’16 fashion show and opted to wear something from the designers themselves. A shirt dress (which I actually think is a longer length tee from the guys section) from one of their previous collections. I wanted an overall athleisure look so teamed the tee with the new “it” sneaker from adidas Originals, the NMD’s, and knotted hair instead of boxer braids. My final touch was my dark lip, Plum and Base, courtesy of Catrice.

With the duo making waves in the design industry both locally and abroad I think we can expect some extraordinary things from Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen.
