Proudly South African

Now while this blog focuses on the international fashion scene, I feel obliged in the most passionate sense of the word to showcase the South African designers that I love, and love to watch on their way up.

Black Coal: Taking Denim To The Next Level

The Mastermind: Pumeza Mekuto

Signature: A remarkable use of denim, an ethnic touch and the ability to turn hard-to-wear colours into solid pieces we need to wear. 

Viyella: Menswear Gets Suave
est: 1784 

Signature: Luxury menswear of the finest materials, impeccable tailoring and collections that exude enough of the right kind of swagger to be worthy of international acclaim. 

David Tlale: The Heavyweight

Signature: Elaborate, outrageous, mental attention to detail and in all honesty, the most promising SA designer at the moment.
