Zimbabwean-born Fashion Designer Incorporates Braille into Her Clothes

Tapiwa Dingwiza says she wants fashion to represent and celebrate blind people. S.VINGO Bespoke’s first collection has been inspired by childhood experiences and is characterised by craftsmanship, creativity and embossed braille personal messages for a confident, classic and playful man while the woman is distinctive, modern and dares to be different with a timeless appeal. The womenswear is also characterised by the use of exaggerated volume and shapes.  The label seeks to create a relationship between a wearer and a garment by simply having a secret message, a memorable event or inspirational words written on your garment in braille.
