There's something about this beautifully crafted piece that not only showcases creativity but also adds a little playfulness to an outfit. The piece has a touch of everyone's inner child. Pair the necklace with a plain black LBD to create an elegant playful outfit and put the fun back into your day - we quote "don't dull".

Craig Jacobs of Fun by Fundudzi -

The man with the fun in the tips of his fingers, meet Craig Jacobs

Craig Jacobs studied at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia however, he decided to shift route slightly and went back to his native of South Africa. From South Africa's creative central Johannesburg, Craig focused mainly on fashion as he felt a need to explore a fresh platform and tell positive stories to Africa about Africa. He started his label, Fundudzi, in 2004 alongside Pumla Ngxekana who later moved to New York and the brand became purely his own. Craig Jacobs uses thought provocative and unconventional ways to empower people through his designs, with all pieces individually telling a unique story.

Provocative fashion...ILA likes much!
