It’s almost time for Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion Week taking place from 30 July to 1 August at a new venue – The V&A Waterfront.
This year’s highlights include two new designers joining the fashion week regulars, Goose Homme Prorsum, a smart-casual Italian culture-inspired menswear label and XIPIXI, another menswear label with a distinctly African flavour made using ‘fine fabrics from Mozambique and Mali’.
Also, David Tlale will be launching his bridal couture line; Leigh Schubert introduces menswear and Dax Martin and Gayle Johnson have created an activewear collection with the profits going towards Operation Smile, a worldwide organisation that provides free, life-changing cleft palate- and cleft lip-fixing surgery to those in need.
