Flirty, fun fashion at Cape Town Fashion Week

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town is in full swing showcasing design perfection at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). What can we expect for the Summer/Spring 2012 season? It seems fun, flirty with a throwback to bygone eras are on the cards, with the runways also displaying a love of bold colours and prints. 

We popped over to the CTICC and along with local celebrities, fashion lovers and curious clothes horses we checked out a few shows. Below are some photos from the event: 

Leigh Schubert 

Before the start of the show Schubert, who designed the Team SA Olympic Kit, presented a custom-made black jacket with the South African flag to Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille. The show then kicked off with Schubert's pink and flirty outlook on summer complemented by the Ice Cream Ninjas' delicious ice cream.

Habits Fashion

Inspired by the film The Artist, the Habits Fashion show centred on 1920s-inspired designs, lots of floral prints, pleats and light, sheer fabrics.

Craig Port 

"Keep calm and rock on" perfectly sums up the Craig Port fashion display. Sleek and on trend, the colour palette was mostly muted.

Gavin Rajah

Gavin Rajah transported fashionistas to a fantasy land with his show. Lots of fabric, detailed beading and embroidery as is signature Gavin.
