This week Cape Town will be bustling and hustling with designers, models and fashionistas as the latest trends are showcased at Africa Fashion International's Mercedez Benz Fashion Week.
The one thing I really dig about Fashion Week, besides having to take to the ramp for local designers is that everyone gets dressed up and there is always a feeling of excitement, class and glamour that hangs in the air. What I also like is that for some reason, all the judging and critiquing gets put aside, yeah you check out and rate whatever someone is wearing, it is fashion week after all, but as the fashionistas come out in their masses wearing just about what ever they want there really is not room to judge. Everyone can just really be themselves.
Anyway, this year's theme is Creative Freedom to celebrate the World Design Capital 2014. Shows will run from the 24th to the 26th of July 2014 at the Cape Town Convention Centre. Shows will feature local designers such as Gavin Rajah, KLK CDGT, Stefania Morland, Fabiani and Craig Port as well as some really cool newcomers.
