Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town S/S 14 [Day 3]

This is the third day recap of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town Spring/Summer 13.

There were so many collections, and the previous two days of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town were so stunning, that it became harder to pick our favorite pieces and designers from Day 3. There was definitely a great selection of designers for this edition; Danielle Margaux, Non European, Dax Martin, Stefania Morland, Spilt Milk, Shana, Lo, Michelle Ludek and Leigh Schubert delivered an incredible number of great pieces all in one collection. Spring/Summer 14 might be happening in your closet more than anywhere else, because you might have trouble deciding what to wear everyday. We'll let you decide your favorite collection. Scroll through our gallery above.
