We brought you all the exclusive content from some of our favorite designers and moments from Fashion Month. This week we bringing it back home by guiding you through the moments from our very own local fashion week; South African Fashion Week in Johannesburg.

The designer: Gert Johan Coetzee

The Look: Simple and Sophisticated

The Inspiration: Inspired by South Africa’s HIV epidemic and the stigma attached to the disease, Gert Johan Coetzee created a collection to remind us that we have to look after ourselves and our health. Using a broad colour spectrum, he created pieces with a serious 70s flair, flattering silhouettes and simple lines. Of course, it wouldn’t have been a GJC show without the glam factor, Swarovski-adorned dresses and tops gave the collection its sparkle.
