The Fashion School in Cape Town.  Based in the Old Biscuit Mill, Woodstock.

Lexus South African Menswear Week once again hosted some of Africa’s top established and emerging designers, showcasing their new Autumn/Winter 2017 ranges. DAF alumni, Nicholas Coutts, presented his 70’s-inspired range with his signature weaving technique and fresh colours popping on the runway designed for the “contemporary man who likes classic style with a twist”, as he tells us. He also was also inspired by “South Africa’s diverse culture, celebrating freedom and originality”.

DAF part-time lecturer, Alexandra Blank, also showcased her trans-seasonal unisex range full of statement prints on satin and distressed denim inspired by epic classics and the digital age on personality-prominent models who walked down the runway to a live rock band.

The shows were unforgettable and we look forward to seeing what our DAF-familia designers have to delight us with next.
