South Africa Fashion Week A/W17 DAY 4

Day 4 marked the beginning of the menswear collections showcase. This day also happened to be Heritage Day, where everyone gets to dress up in traditional regalia as a celebration of South African culture. See the dope street style.
In line with these two themes, I opted for an oversize, man-style denim jacket and as homage to Kenyan heritage- a leso dress and Malkia choker designed for my OwnYourCulture collection.

The menswear collections were nothing short of amazing. Present were bold prints, unique cuts and designs. One such collection was by AfrikanSwiss, that presented an interesting twist to everyday wear. This collection had fringe detailing on pants, unexpected designs for zippers, fun restyling of the ordinary button-up shirt. The coolest of this was the one shoulder styling of fabric common with many African communities. Again so very #OwnYourCulture! It's great to see the addition of heritage in today's trends.

I find it quite fascinating , the evolution of menswear fashion today. This next collection presented flowing , loose cuts and patterns. Very much today's menstyle by Rogue

Showcasing a fresh way of incorporating prints this next collection by D.O.P.E cool and dope just like the acronym for this fashion house.
