As you might have gathered in our tweets and fashion pieces, I attended Joburg Fashion Week recently. I was taken to the past, present and future by the designer collections and trends.
There were over 25 designers, all showcasing unique looks inspired by different places, stories and people for this year’s Autumn/Winter. Trends included exaggerated shoulders, colour blocking, clashing prints and patterns, winter coats, Peter-pan shoes and detachable collars, checks, bowties, sequins, turn-up pants, coat dresses, sheer fabrics and interesting cuts. Also, layering – as we saw in Avant’s collection – and faux fur, as we spotted in the David Tlale’s collection, are just some of this year’s winter looks.
White was a popular colour used by designers, while some utilized different shades of earthy tones. Gold, floral prints and bright contrasting tones, not forgetting the shiny shimmery fabrics, were also common.
