Capetown South Africa was the site of a fashion week that brought illumination to a continent and country filled with traditionally bad news from the media. The event featured a myriad of South African and international designers that each showcased the best of continent. The Spring/Summer collections came from South African designers like Themba Mngomezulu of the clothing label, Darkie, Gavin Rajah who was the only South African invited to show his collection in Paris, designer David Tiale who worked wonders with sequins and several others. The event was a success by all accounts as the spotlight on the country proved to tempting to pass up for the talented designers.
There’s already talk of holding more events throughout the year to showcase the talent of these designers.
