- JJ SCHOEMAN; If you are one of those people that stay away from colour every day, all day , then JJ Schoeman s’ collection is especially, most definitely and absolutely designed just for you. It’s a doll house of classy fashion, all a woman needs to feel that extra touch of sexy or extra jolt of sass. JJ Schoeman s (mostly)black) collection flatters every skin tone and it can be layered endlessly. I’m Imagining these black dresses on my body, layered with silver or gold accessories, wearing a black jacket, coat or blazer. I hate winter, but JJ Schoeman s’ winter / autumn collection could warm my heart to it.
2. SUN GODDESS
Xhosa traditional dresses come in various shades, shapes, sizes and hues – each with its own particular message. For instance: In the silent but unmistakable stylish language of clothing, you can see that a lady is married because her head is covered. If her turban dips below eye level, it means she has just married. Only young girls may go around bare-breasted.
In most Xhosa communities, it is all about the headpiece. The more elaborate the hat, the more senior the wearer. But Sun Goddesses doesn’t only focus on head pieces; the focus is on the large but delicate and intrinsic whole of Xhosa culture.
In the below Sun Goddess outfits, I see Power, strength, Confidence and Beauty. Stunning.
3. KEYS FASHION
Former Miss World Rolene Strauss graced the covers of South African Cosmopolitan May 2015. Rolene Strauss wore a very beautiful Haute Couture Dress designed by Keys Fashion. When I saw the Dress in the inside of May 2015 Cosmopolitan, I immediately recognized it as one of he dresses I saw at The previous SA Fashion week and a wave of excitement rushed through me. When I checked out the details of the photo, Iwas SHOCKED.
The dress, if I’m not mistaken cost around R20 000.00, more or less… because Keys fashion is Haute couture; high end fashion, constructed by hand from start to finish, made from high quality, expensive, often unusual fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and capable sewers, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques. duuurrhhhh… LOL what else waa i expecting? Then I pulled myself back together again and continued to enjoy the rest of the Magazine.
4. CLIVE RUNDLE
Between the white tinted hair, the asymmetrical cuts, the layered outfits, the printed bottoms and tops and the colorful dresses was intrigue and perfection.
None simple outfits, work on sight boots, hexagonal pieces stitched neatly together with little or no accessories at all – a very graphic show. There is a distinct considered art to what Clive Rundle creates, but he is also a commercial veteran. His work may appeal to the conscientious fashion intellectual, but he’s certainly not playing the fool.
5. SHEILA MADGE DESIGNS
What I found and understood on the Sheila Madge Website (About Me) was that Sheila-Madge Bakker is a Pretoria-based designer. The rest I saw as she show cased at SA FASHION WEEK Autumn/Winter 2017.
Sheila specializes in Avant-garde with wear ability, neat huh? But I included this collection in my top 5 collections from SA FASHION WEEK because I see youth, vibrancy and freedom. The colours are earthy and the cuts are cute and young. Love how girly and fun this collection is.
