CAPE TOWN FASHION WEEK DATES ANNOUNCED!

Time to get your pretty on again soon as Mercedes Benz Cape Town Fashion Week has been announced. Save the date for 30 July -1 August 2015 and prepare yourself for a wealth of designers taking part in this year's show. Fashion Weeks always offer a platform for creative dressing, so get the  creative juices flowing by start playing with your wardrobe. The simplest way of going about creative dressing is to watch attendees at European Fashion Weeks, with the option to wear things less conventional. A dash of vintage is always a great idea. I spotted a few trends in Europe recently, and since we are one season behind, there can be no doubt that we will be seeing a lot of over the knee boots, ( yes another season of those), coats draped over the shoulders, long and short layers worn together aka Margaret Zhang style, bold colours and dresses or skirts worn with pants editor style, ponchos and cape coats galore. Fur has been a firm favourite but since our temperature hardly permits a coat, there is little room for that. I always hope for really cold weather as I am keen on layering and bulking up on fur accessories ( you may fake the fur with faux...)
 
This year's event promises to deliver an impressive collection with AFI being the driving force in the discovery of new and  upcoming talent.  Watch this space for further news on the event. In the meanwhile, a few snippets from last year's event...
