SA Fashion Week begins with the opening party, where the real trends are set. Yellow’s in and shirts are definitely out.

The Fashion Industry is engaging on three broad topics of exploration right now; Afro-futurism, the Asia Aesthetic, and Sustainable Fashion. Here are my favorite collections representing each of these influences.

ROQ Menswear

Siyavuya Roqoza’s brand is inspired by culture and a sense of adventure. I love his use of geometric patterns and am blown away by the beadwork.

Judith Nel’s Atelier is a high-end women’s wear label in the Western Cape, and can drape like Gods.

Black Coffee

South African designer Jacques van der Watt uses the most cutting edge technology of any fashion house in the country!

Cape Wools

Cape Wools sponsored two designers’ collections at SA Fashion week, and they were SO fantastic!

Erre was the first women’s wear show I’ve attended in a while, and it was lovely to see how the soft fabrics flowed across the runway.

Klippa’s show included a great deal of choreography, which was super fun to watch instead of a slow motion tennis match.

I LIVE for these visors!!

It’s so hard to pic favorites at fashion week yo, but this season I’m in love with

Zamaswazi <3<3<3

I’m so glad to see Zamaswazi hit the runway again, and certainly still love his quirky play on formal menswear.  I’ll probably always question some of his paneling decisions, but I love his overall approach to fashion and aesthetic. Can you believe this man is self taught?

Bi Apparel

Designer Shaylene Paige Morris knows no bounds.

The thing I love MOST about Fashion Week is how extreme it is…just when you thought you knew what was going on BLVNK is like…
