The biggest week in South African fashion is almost upon us, ladies and gentlemen. South African Fashion Week is NEXT WEEK. As is tradition, SAFW will be kicked off by the Cruz Vodka Fashion Week Opening Party and we're excited to say we're on the guest list!

For those who have never attended the annual Fashion Week curtain-raiser, here's a brief preview of what you can expect on the big night:


We've been told by a super secret source that some of the biggest celebrities in Mzansi are on the guest list for this year's SAFW opening party. Along with Mr Cruz himself, AKA, we're expecting to see Nadi Nakai, Da-LES, Lira, Blue Mbombo and a number of Mzansi's hottest A-listers true.

A sneak peek at this year's SAFW:

This year's SA Fashion Week will be featuring some of our favourite designers including Gert-Johan Coetzee, Ryan Keys, Ntando XV and plenty more. While that action is reserved for the week itself, we are expecting to see a preview of the groundbreaking work that will be on display during this year's SA Fashion Week.
