Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg A/W 2015 Trends Men's Wear

When a lot of people think men's wear they think boring dull, suit after suit after suit, there is always that, why go to a men's show when you know what they are going to show and in a way i have been a victim of that mind set before, but as the years have passed on men's wear has grown in leaps and bounds, there is so much more to it that a 3 piece suite and dress shoes and the men's wear designers at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg totally showed us that men's wear is fun and edgy and exciting.

Standouts for me where Augustine they totally blew my mind away, Ruald Rheeder and AFI Fastrack designer Armand Dicker ( he is just out of this world) and from all these shows i picked up a few trends that excited me and make me wish it was winter already, there was a lot of red, amazing leather pieces, a lot of grey and black which was all over the street style looks as well and coats that make you want to rip them off the models and keep.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg A/W 2015 Trends Women's Wear

As we all know the main reason most of us descend upon Fashion Weeks is for the shows, from buyers, to socialites, to bloggers to editors, we are all there because of one reason and that's to see what trends are going to emerge for the upcoming season, i have always done this from the comfort of my home watching fashion weeks from New York to Milan on fashion TV, and online for local fashion weeks.

So you can imagine it was quite an experience sitting right there with people i have always admired in the fashion industry, seeing what i normally see a few days later with them at the same time, putting my opinion with them about what i thought of the collection, what my favorite pieces where and what trends i see coming  for the upcoming autumn winter season, there was a common thread and a consistency about what to expect for the winter, designers from Khosi Nkosi to Grapevine to Suzaan Heyns had whites, prints, sheers, statements coats and tassels, here are some of my favorite looks from the shows i attended showing off the biggest trends from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg.
