The SAFW Pop Up
The SA Fashion Week Pop Up shops are a well anticipated event, and this season it took place in Sandton City’s Fountain Court. The three day spectacle showcased the work of proudly South African designers such Roman Handt, Suzaan Heyns, Guillotine, Stoned Cherrie and Sies!Isabella as well as Gert-Johan Coetzee and Jessica Rayne for Rayne.
