LEXUS SOUTH AFRICAN MENSWEAR WEEK A/W’17 DAY 2

DAY TWO

The Venue

The rest of SAMW A/W’17 was held on location at The Palms in Woodstock. South African Menswear Week is often held at the Green Point Stadium so this new venue was certainly a breath of fresh air. The venue was very inviting and cosy compared to the huge facilities and cold concrete floors at the stadium. I must say, I sure missed the spacious areas and the cool atmosphere provided by those concrete floors when I stepped backstage. There was an overwhelming heat wave backstage and not much space to move around or work in. I take my hat off to the crew who managed to pull off their artistic visions in these not very ideal conditions.

The Fashion

When attending SAMW A/W’17 I’m always waiting in anticipation for 2 of my favourite designers Rich Mnisi and Tokyo James but found myself mesmerized by quite a few of the designers whom I feel created wearable art pieces. I was so amazed and impressed by our local menswear designers this year!
