Fashion Week: Top 3 trends


After a fantastic run, Cape Town Fashion week has ended with much to show for itself. Here are a few trends that popped up through various designers:

Trend #1: Colour blocking with brights.

Match various solid colours or just stick to one. Keep it bright and minimalistic in silhouette and let the colour speak for itself

Trend #2: Watercolour prints

Soft and pretty prints that look just like the paint technique. Keep the lines feminine too.

Trend #3: White

Simple, elegant designs in pure white

General Trends:

  • Many a maxi dress billowed along the catwalk.
  • Designs were simple and feminine.
  • Lots of loose fitting pieces, like off-the-shoulder tops and willowy skirts and sleeves made appearances.
