South Africa's Best Dressed At STR CRD 2013 [OKATV]

Watch Okayafrica TV's recap video for STR CRD 2013 in Joburg, the premiere festival for South African fashion, music and streetwear.


We were on the ground alongside SA's most stylish for Jo'burg's STR.CRD, the continent's premiere urban youth culture festival. For a second year in a row, OKATV was present for the one weekend of the year that gathers South Africa's urban street culture tastemakers and international industry names for a good time of creative expression in the name of "Fashion, Music, Sneakers, Graffiti, Skate, Dance, Photography, [and] Culture." Watch the recap below featuring the many styles of STR.CRD and try spotting a who's who of culture gurus from CT royalty Crazy White Bitches, to noir-waver Petite Noir and veterans of travel Street Etiquette. For more from this year's STR.CRD catch up on our choice photos from Opening Night, the pop-up shop reveal, and Saturday's main event.
