The annual South African fashion week curtain-raiser, the Cruz SAFW Opening Party, took place in Johannesburg on Monday night and all of the biggest a-listers from across Mzansi were in attendance.

This year's event was a star-studded affair as all of the most high profile names from our entertainment industry made their way to Ferguson on 5th in Johannesburg for what promised to be a night of fabulous entertainment, hot outfits and maybe just a dash of Cruz vodka.

After a bit of a drive (read: our driver got lost!) we made it to the official party where proceedings were already well underway but we got the opportunity to mingle a few stars on the red carpet including the one and only Mr Cruz Vodka himself, AKA:

Supa Mega looked to be in the mood to entertain and although we loved his attire, we had stiff competition for the "best dressed" award. Just look at how the likes of Moozlie, Sarah Langa, Nambitha Ben-Mazwi and Kim Jayde managed to take over the red carpet:

While there we managed to squeeze a quick word out of Abigail Visagie who was dressed to the 9s we might add. She was beaming with excitement and although we could barely hear her, she exclaimed:

"Fashion Week is a BIG BIG deal! South African fashion is doing so well right now and this week is just our big opportunity to celebrate that. Our designers are winning awards overseas and doing big things, we are just excited to be doing the most".
