South African Fashion Week AW16

South African Fashion Week commenced last week and kicked off with the official Cruz Vodka Opening Party.  The trends for the season seem to be glazed with blue and black hues, heavy, textured fabrics and angular prints. The narratives in the shows played with ideas of urban women in their cityscape habitat, travelling ensembles, ethnicity and a fusion between feminine flowing fabrics and carefully formulated androgynous qualities.
