The view from the incredible skywalk at Shine Studios in Braamfontein proved to be one of the highlights of the Summer Collections – well done to all the high heeled fashionistas who walked their own ramp to move from one spectacular Shine rooftop to another enjoying Jo’burgs best view along the way.
The second SA Fashion Week Buyer’s Lounge and networking session was held on Friday 8 April with 22 designer’s participating and we were delighted to have visits from 24 Buyers. We are committed to growing the Buyer’s Lounge each season and have exciting plans for this area of the Winter Collections later this year.
