Hey guys. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I recently attended Fashion Week at Mall of Africa this past week. It ran from the 17th to the 19th of August but I only attended the first two days and couldn’t make it for the third day.
It was my first time actually experiencing it like this and I’ll let you know what ‘like this’ actually means just now. So thanks to Trace South Africa (the music channel if yall aren’t sure what I’m talking about) my group of friends/fellow bloggers and I, got tickets to attend all the shows because we were doing a social media coverage for them. We were really excited about this as this was a big opportunity for us and of course excited about the fact that we were going to be featured on their Instagram page!!! (They even had a banner and all for us guys!)
It was a great experience overall, despite it being hella cold. The weather didn’t want us to be great but still it didn’t stop us. Day 1 and 2 shows were beautiful, these designers personally for me, pulled out all the stops. It was great to see how South African Designers are doing their thing, especially with people not believing in them and constantly comparing them to designers from overseas. My favourite shows from these days were Gavin Rajah, AFI Prive, Thula Sindi, ORAPELENG MEDUTLE (I did that on purpose by the way, just check out the red dress below which was even accompanied by an entourage of men!!) and Khosi Nkosi.
On day 2 of MBFWJ we decided to check out the AFI Xperience Side which was also at Mall of Africa, when we got there we were all wondering why hadn’t we checked it out before. The vibes there were awesome, apart from having its own fashion shows, it was still a bit different because it had vibey music, different stalls to check such as the barber place where you could actually get your hair cut right there and then, bars where of course you can get your drinks from and overall just get to hang out with your celebrities and people with a good vibe. There was dancing which also just made it the place to be! Including this section to MBFWJ was, in our opinion, the best idea that’s ever happened to Fashion Week
The whole experience of fashion week was just amazing, if you were there we think you’d agree with us and feel free to leave a comment about how the experience went for you. MBFWJ we thank you for an awesome experience!
Till next time guys! 🙂 🙂 🙂
