This Thursday, Cape Town Stadium will play host to South Africa’s (SA’s) one-and-only menswear week platform – SA Menswear Week (SAMW). With the inaugural event that happened in February this year boasting tremendous success, this second sitting of fashion lovers, critics, admirers, wannabes and paparazzi – all vetting the group of designers showcasing – will undoubtedly be a step up and come with heavy-handed anticipation to whether the organizers of this platform can really step their game up.
Attendees to SAMW this week can expect a host of designers from across Africa: over 18 shows can be expected during the three-day fashion week. Daunting, right? Wrong! This is why we exist – to help you nibble on the hors d’oeuvres like a true fashion and style patron, we are listing the must-see shows that you have got to get a seat for. It’s simply put: your gig guide to the best shows.
