The digital prints from this collection are inspired by animals hide, skins and furs. The prints are bold and strong and there is a hint in the direction towards more structured blocks of shape and colour. The knitwear, in graduating shades of grey has been cut to flow widely around a silhouette, with arm and leg warmers continuing the raw and unbreakable feel throughout the collection.
'For us this collection has been about showing the british fashion industry who the Aminaka Wilmont woman is. She is determined and confident with her own individuality and uniqueness. This is our 7th season on schedule, we know the direction we are moving in and we want this to come across in the collection.' explained Maki Aminaka, Creative Director of Aminaka Wilmont.

The Prophetik Autumn/Winter 2011 show kicked off with a live volin performance by Analiza Ching, and the award-winning British composer and conductor, Benjamin Ellin and his orchestra.
Ripped silks and organic sit alongside 100 year year old southern quilt handed down from Jeff Garner's great grandmother Lola.
One of the jackets in his collection is crafted from the quilted bedspread from Jeff's bed as a child.
Thick and heavy hemp skirt sweep the floor and a new fabric introduced this season is a cactus silk, made from the agave plant.
Prophetik's show stopping finale dress is made from ostrich feathers, which are naturally shed twice a year, hand stitched onto silk.
Prophetik has collaborated with accessories label dotted loop on the reworked vintage jewellery and with Los Angeles based sustainable shoe label, CYDWOQ. Shoes have been co-designed by Prophetik's Keff Garner and CYDWOQ's Rafi, made by artisans using vegetable-tanned leather.
