What to wear when you’re there? 
Johannesburg is a vibrant up and coming city, filled with potential and an exciting new enthusiasm for all things creative. Africa Fashion week has been running for 10 seasons now and gaining international interest from more designers, buyers and press each time. Below are some street style shots of the most stylish characters I met at fashion week. I’m not suggesting this is every day street wear for Johannesburg, more a snapshot of sartorially inclined South African fashionistas.
