Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013: Marianne Fassler presents “Painted, Patched & Patterned”

Published

Marianne FasslerSitting right behind the South African fashion designer Marianne Fassler, it was almost like getting to see the show from her point of view.

On day 2 of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013, Marianne who also showcased a collaborated collection with luxury accessory designer Quamta {click here if you missed it}, took audience members into  a world of  up-cycling and re-claiming. In her studio at Leopard Frock, all scraps fabrics are considered worthy of re-used and in the process of re-imagination, her collection pieces were created, patched and painted into wearable seasonal clothes for the global traveler.

My Verdict
I loved this collection so much. As I sat behind the designer you easily tell that she was happy with the turnout and who can blame her, it was a great show. My fave pieces have to be the image 14 & 15. They’re beautiful dresses that have amazing colour combinations and that I can definitely see Eku Edewor wearing. What do you think of the collection?

If you missed out on the first set of shows from Day 1, you have missed out on a lot. But not to worry, we have got it all here:
