Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg 2015 Gavin Rajah - Bellanaija - March2015061

The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg 2015 officially kicked off on Thursday 5th March 2015 at Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, South Africa. The event has been a fabulous collection of SA’s finest coming together to showcase their collections, and give fashion critics, editors and fashion lovers a dose of their 2015 collections.

We would love to share all the fabulosity from all the designers at this year’s event, but thought we’d just share a few of our favourites instead.

Womenswear designer, entrepreneur and UNICEF Ambassador, Gavin Rajah is one of the most revered designers in South African & African fashion in general. Every year, individuals in the business of fashion gather to see and review his collections; and this year they met with his Resort 2015 collection.

With a 70s inspiration, the collection featured swimwear with retro hints, see-through swiss broderie dresses, capes, pantsuits, floral embroidered dresses and more. The models rocked chic shoes by Europa Art Shoes, adding extra glam to the entire showcase. The resort 2015 vibe was completed with distressed straw hats and large messy hair.

    This showcase make me think natural hair is exotic lol Now it makes sense the stares I get when I do a twist out. Every girl should do a twist out style in their lifetime and ooown their feminity without apology for once. I’m such a shy quiet type but when I rock twist outs shiiild it’s like slaaay! 😀 but good ‘ole fro puff still is my go-to er’day anyday.
