Tina Kalivas - Zarafshan

What do you get when you mix one of Australia’s top fashion designers with Afghani women living in the outer suburbs of Sydney? A breath of fresh air. Named Zarafshan, after one of the skilled women she worked with, the latest collection by Tina Kalivas takes inspiration from a country that’s no stranger to the news. Contrasting Afghanistan’s colourful culture with its rough terrain, Kalivas works military overtones alongside ethnic emblems to deliver neutral toned pieces with fluoro tribal trimmings. Wear the collection M.I.A style with high-tops, or step things up a notch in a pair of nude patent pumps. However you mix it up, just make sure it’s accessorised with a whole lot of attitude.
