PatternNation creates one of a kind looks by up-cycling vintage ourselves and working with Durban based seamstresses to create small batch collections. We design ungendered clothing and jewelry that are bold statement pieces for the colourful and creative humans of the world. Previously PatternNation editorials have been published in 10+ international magazines and blogs. We collaborate with models, dancers, musicians, photographers and other designers to create one of a kind photoshoots and fashion films.
