It seems as if men's fashion is far removed from what women's fashion is all about, at least in the african context. My observation looking at some of the pics from the shows that were held, is that, there isn't much quirky, eccentric or idiosyncratic expressions of men's fashion. Everything seems real, applicable and most importantly pragmatic. Just take a look at some of the pictures below.
Designs from above are from Craig Port, Craig Jacobs and Fabiani. It is also important to know that the driving force behind AJFW is African Fashion International chaired by Dr. Precious Moloi-Motsepe. What I admire about this initiative is that it has become a springboard and platform for South African designers to put themselves on the global stage. This is an opportunity that has seen the likes of David Tlale, Thula Sindi, Machere and a host of others pass the fashion stage with flying colours.
