We may still be in Cape Town, but that hasn’t stopped us from bringing you the latest happenings from in and around Joburg. Luckily, Lisof graduate and fashion fiend, Abu was kind enough to rep us at the Edgars #NightOfFashion Extravaganza.
Ready. Set. Fashion.
Edgars #NightOfFashion found Joburg’s fashionistas brace the newly renovated Rosebank Mall dressed in our best on Thursday 9 October. With the likes of trend analyst Dion Chang, and Edgars trend executive Sandy Rogers as well as Fashion’s best bloggers and media’s golden boy Maps Maponyane as the night’s MC.
With an exciting fashion show highlighting this summer’s top trends namely florals, brights, denim and leather accents – styled in monochrome summery suits in edgy crop-tops and denim shorts as well as effortless printed dresses. Festival-inspired styling saw the printed kimono styled with denim shorts and the cutesie crop top set the scene as you grace the beaches with those vintage pair of sunnies. The male models and their six-packs certainly made the #nightoffashion memorable for the evening. It’s no wonder Edgars has decided to host Britain’s best labels in South Africa, each one iconic in its own right!
