JoBurg Fashion Autumn/Winter 2012


South Africa’s fashion week offerings are always a sight to behold and an awesome representation of the growth of African fashion. We have to admit that some of these designers do give other African designers a run for their money. Or rather, they set a standard for new and upcoming design talents to look up to.
With JoBurg Fashion Week behind us, we had to make its magic last a little longer. So we pulled out some potential trends from the selection of designers. From Gavin Rajah to Loin Cloth & Ashes we saw trends of white as a staple colour for our wardrobe; the sheer trend seems like it’s here to stay as it’s been replicated fashion week after fashion evolving to what we’ve aptly captioned ‘sheer halves’. We also spotted yummy trends like velvet and popsicle (yes, some of these trends look good enough to eat) and some bizzare taffeta layering! We’ve made the trend spotting easier for you with our round up from JFW! Enjoy!
