SEE IT, SEW IT, WEAR IT!

I am always on the lookout for African fashion that is practical yet fashionable. The type of clothes that you can get your favourite tailor to sew for you!
Here are some clothes by South African designers - Thula Sindi’s 2LA (Two-Lah), Mantsho by Palesa Mokubung, Bongiwe Walaza for Aziza Couture and Malcolm Kluk …their clothes are sooooo FAB!
Check it out!




added some more pics

Hope your weekend was cool! Mine felt way too short!
In case u missed it, check out Sunday's feature as well....
Let us know what u think about the clothes and have a fab week ahead.

Bella u are always prompt with your blog entries, that's a Plus. Nice pictures, but you need to start showing some fashion pictures catering to the Men. We also need to get info on looking right in Naija attire, ya dig?

My weekend was long and mellow...

Gorgeous baby!!!! the second dress is fantastic. i love the colour and the design. Its so definitely a fashion fab. However, i think the runway should have been plain.in order to make the printed fabrics stand out. the textured carpet really drowns everything. its hardly visible.
