Fashion Week

So much went down at MBFWJ last week. Here are the 10 moments we’ll remember. 

When designers showed summer-ready looks.
From relaxed cuts to flowy shapes and flirty cut-outs, these looks reminded us just how much we miss summer. Roll on, December. We're so ready! 
 
When we saw the detail shots from backstage.
Jake Singer wowed us with his backstage pics night after night. We love how he manages to get those epic detail shots to tie us over until we can lay hands on the garments. 
 
When Nomzamo Mbatha out-bolded all the street style looks. 
Trust Nomzamo to slay in a bold print by Rich Factory. One couldn’t really help but stare… and photograph her for our Street Style page. 
 
The Raya Rossi chokers at Shana.
Our Creative Director’s new accessories line complimented Shana’s dreamy spring collection perfectly. Here's the full review.
 
The golden faces at David Tlale.
Mad makeup skills, team MAC. We loved the gold-standard faces at David Tlale.
 
When the class of MaXhosa sat down.
There’s nothing like a really good photo op at a runway show. This season, Laduma delivered a chic lineup of prints that had photographers flocking onto the runway to get their class picture. 
 
When street style candidates made a compelling case for neutral greys.
We’re feeling these grey looks from our street style page - a nice palate cleanser before spring (and its bold prints) arrives. 
 
When Rich and Maps collaborated.
The show was perfection. We loved. See our full review here.
 
When the blush bridal stunner at Stefania became our most-liked IG of the collections.
What a stunner! This dress stole the Stefania Morland show, and got the most likes of all our MBFWJ Instagram posts. 
 
When we discovered Buda is the next big thing. 
Young designer Buda Malete won the AFI Fastrack 2016 competition. His winning collection, a collaboration with DJ Tira felt current and full of potential. Watch this space.
