Feel like a bit of style inspiration? Then head on over to The SA Fashion Week Ekurhuleni Designer Pop-Up Shop in the Strelitzia, Edgars Court Space at Eastgate Shopping Centre.
Today is the last day to indulge in over 50 designer stands. The featured top SA designers include Black Coffee, ERRE, Lunar, Sober and Sies!Isabelle.
The collaboration between SAFW and the City of Ekurhuleni showcases the creativity that exists in the Ekurhuleni district.
SA Fashion Week implemented a three-month programme leading up to the Designer Pop-Up Shop. The focus was on mentoring Ekurhuleni designers with commercially viable collections to sell at the SAFW Ekurhuleni Designer Pop-Up Shop.
Jacques van der Walt from Black Coffee, collaborated with crafters from Ekurhuleni municipality to create a ready-to-wear range at SA Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2015 Collections. The Collection introduced hand-beading, crochet work, hand painted imagery, handcrafted accessories and copper wirework. You can look forward to seeing his collaboration at the next Spring/Summer 2015 Collection this coming season.
