With South African Fashion Week to take place in less than a week, we look at some of the top looks from the previous shows.

SAFW SA Fashion Week is the optimal platform for designers to start, develop and grow their businesses. It is the key voice of fashion in South Africa recognizing the power of diversity held in this sector, which is one of the most socially inclusive SA industries.

Over the past 19 years, SAFW has brought the creative fashion design industry together. A collective industry knowledge is shared and provides sustainable marketing platforms taking high-end designs from the design studio into the retail environment.

On October 24-28, SAFW will present its AW18 collection at the Rooftop in Sandton City.
