This year’s South African Fashion Week (SAFW2016) took place in Johannesburg earlier this month. This premier event in South Africa’s fashion industry was closely watched by fashion forward people in South Africa and the rest of the continent. The week long event showcased beautiful designs, and we picked some to give you a glimpse of SAFW2016.
