METAPHOR is a designer’s attempt to reflect on the changes that we as a society have consciously embraced by continuously liberating ourselves from the dogma which we have lived with for centuries.

The Summer 17/18 Collection is a continuation of Kal Kalim’s previous work showcased at the Adelaide Fashion Festival in 2015 and 2016. The label is inspired by the changing face of our society that is opening up to diversity and becoming an all-inclusive world. It doesn’t discriminate on the basis of gender.

Metaphor is the change that humanity should have made long ago – the change that many have fought against but only a few have fought for. Metaphor is the courage to fight prejudice, hatred and discrimination. Metaphor is the new age of acceptance, inclusion and equality. Metaphor is unity. One thread. One colour. One world.

Kal has worked in Asia, Europe, and Africa on various projects including designing restaurants, nightclubs and clothing labels.
