South African Fashion Week A/W 14 Collections

Our favorite South African Fashion Week collections of the Autumn/Winter 14. See the best South African fashion!

South African Fashion Week presented Autumn/Winter 14 Collections from October 3rd to October 7th in Johannesburg. This edition was particularly strong in ideas and creativity highlighting the hottest trends in South African fashion. While some designers were reluctant to take excessive risks, others banked everything on illustrating their trendy vision. Sometimes, it turned out well, sometimes it was way over the top and difficult to envision the pieces as a future outfits. Many of the 30 designers present drew our attention. Our favorite 10 collections were Suzaan Heyns, Gert-Johan Coetzee, Naked Ape by Shaldon Kopman, Roman Handt, Skorzch, Black Coffee, Ephymol, Rubicon, and Narainsamy. With a special mention to the Renault Talent Search Winner: Laz Yani, creative director of Cutterier, who received R15000, a Renault Mégane Coupé, a free space in the Buyers Lounge, the South Africa Fashion Week Pop Up Shop, and representation from The Fashion Agent for one year.
