The day was packed with shows – most less memorable than the last – a runway has never worked as hard.
We kicked off poolside for the sun-drenched Beachcult show, where designer Joanna Hedley sent bronzed models down the runway in slick swimwear pieces and flowing beach coverups in bold yellows and prints inspired by the Karoo night sky.
Later, in a packed-to-the-brim venue, Marianne Fassler took a trip to the east combining ultra modern orient-inspired silhouettes and detailing with a touch of streetwear. Simple shapes paired with soft silks, African prints and transparency in a colour palette that could very well have been put together by Skittles.
Fassler’s flair for the unexpected took viewers by no surprise when suddenly sporty racerback dresses and plaid prints in every colour flooded the runway. The collection was a refreshing take on proportion, print-mixing, colour-clashing and textile combinations that landed Fassler and her a team a standing ovation.
