South African Fashion Week has officially kicked off and the blogosphere is loving the creations by designers like Gert-Johan Coetzee, Clive Rundle, Yasmin Furmi and Felipe Mazibuko. Ntombenhle Shezi of the Sunday Times chose Clive Rundle’s collection as the best collection of opening night. Shezi writes:
“Artfully printed fabrics, droopy silhouettes and strong shapes made Clive Rundle’s show a standout. Featuring everything from ready-to-wear pieces to garments that were more theatrical, the collection included a clever mix of clashing prints and monochrome tones with splashes of colour creeping in every now and then.”
Gert-Johan Coetzee is also being celebrated by a number of South African publications.
