Designer Shaldon Kopman worked not only as a model but also as a fashion director and stylist in the fashion hubs of New York, Milan and Paris. Also having worked as a fashion editor in South Africa for Elle, Soccer Life, Tribute and Y Mag, Kopman definitely knows from an editorial standpoint what works. Kopman’s own stylish ways was recognized by GQ winning GQ’s Best Dressed Man award in 2006. So why not take a turn to designing? It just made sense.  His inspiration for his current collection is the rural-urban migration of a young man and the changes of style that immediately takes place. Natural fabrics are used including handwoven bamboo, organic cotton and hemp. Head-to-toe sexy drama.
