Between Day 1 and Day 3 of South African Fashion Week’s Autumn/Winter 2017 collection, these three designers are my favourite: Sun Goddess, Gert-Johan Coetzee and Somerset-Jane…
The couple behind the label Sun Goddess aim to capture a regal Africa in their designs that celebrates South African heritage. Their 2017 AW collection presents some great options for the elegant, sophisticated and grounded woman needing to dress up for a special event in the colder months. Simply stunning!
A woman wearing the Sun Goddess AW17 collection could turn any winter’s day red hot. There’s also super-hero flair to these outfits, like something Xena or Lara Croft would wear, don’t you agree?
Gert-Johan Coetzee specialises in the creation of couture red-carpet gowns that are donned by both South African and International celebrities. His designs are synonymous with glamour. I love the deep red colour for its warmth and how it’s paired with dramatic texture and print.
The label, Somerset Jane, prides itself in creating locally (South African) made clothing that aims to be comfortably chic with modern class. Her AW17 collection presents work-wear options for the edgy office girl. There are so many great outfits that are classic yet with an edgy twist on the ordinary dress, pants and suit.
