VIDEO: SA Fashion Week

SA Fashion Week opened this week to a flurry of excitement, showcasing innovative and cutting-edge South African design.

Woolworths kicked off the shows with its 2017 StyleBySA seasonal campaign.

Championing home-grown talent by featuring a capsule collection by eight local designers who are taking the fashion scene by storm; namely, Rich Mnisi, Thebe Magugu, AKJP, Pichulik, Maria McCloy, Sol-Sol, Selfi and Young & Lazy.

From modern streetwear to footwear and accessories inspired by the continent, the debut collaboration was a real crowd pleaser. We really loved Rich Mnisi and Thebe Magugu for their modern elegance and Selfi stunned with their playfulness.

In a first for SAFW, some of the collection was immediately available online straight from the runway, resulting in a frenzy of online sales throughout the evening!
