Last weekend’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Johannesburg was filled with a good sense of fashion culture, fashion shakers and movers.
For the duration of the show, we were surrounded by style setters and icons who have revolutionized the fashion industry internationally.
We admired them for their contribution to fashion and for their personal styles. We felt at home and each day gave a reason to keep up with what we loved.
The MBFW was one of the best fashion highlights this year as it had the most talented designers on stage such as Laduma, Carducci, Christie Brown, Rich Mnisi just to name a few.
After meeting the most stylish sleek, sophisticated and inspiring fashion editor Jackie Burger and the king of print Chu Suwannapha, we concluded it was a weekend well spent.
The latter individuals have contributed to our belief that one does not have to succumb to being a fashion slave, but rather should embrace or channel inner creative confidence.
Rubbing shoulders with such big names is not just so you are seen with the who’s who of the industry, but its about building networks for future business prospects.
When you go out following your passion, there are always those big names that will give you reasons to believe that anything is possible. We are grateful for such opportunities.
Regina, the editor of New African Woman, is our guardian angel indeed. We met her and she is one African woman who is goes an extra mile to see fashion from her motherland progress beyond borders.
She has given us opportunities which will always be one of the highlights as fashion artists.
Arieta Mujay is another woman who pushes all boundaries beyond to get work done.
After working with her at the GFW2012 we met her again at the MBFW.
We benefited immensely from her energy and she has indeed become our mentor.
Here, we share with you some of the the pictorial highlights.
