Caslazur the Witch Doctor

A slight morbid fascination with the harsh realities of what it means to live in a continent as colourfully and vastly different as Africa breathes a lot of life into the design creations of Cassie Snelgar.

Her label Caslazur is a womenswear label with a resort-like feel atop a massive infatuation with prints and graphic designs, all the designer’s own.

Coming from South Africa by birth and having as much travel experience as she does, Snelgar brings all of her global inspirations to the fore.

“Growing up in South Africa, I found there was always something fascinating and beautiful hiding in the macabre details of a skeleton or the dark mythology of the folklore,” she said.

The designer channels this fascination and untold story of the apparent magical undertones of the African continent into her first collection called Va Va Voodoo; a contemporary interpretation of the witch doctor.

Snelgar designs every print she uses and carefully thinks through each piece, targeting the happy, care-free lifestyle and demands of the globetrotting traveller.

This collection features a nice smear of silk fabrics used in loose fitting maxis and camisoles, free flowing digital print dresses and jackets combined with separates, perfect for when the sun begins to shine again in late 2013.
