As anticipated, day 3 of the MBFWJ lived up to its expectations. From the weather (being way better than day 2) to more accessories on the runway and of course, ravishing garments. After the Mall of Africa opened the night, showcasing some of the best pieces from leading fashion outlets, Orapeleng Modutle took over with his elegant bridal gowns.

Making his collection even more dramatic is the accessories added. We spotted big hats, sunglasses, handbags and dangling earrings. Red, pink and white being his theme colours. Next show was Adama Paris, who slayed the runway in all white garments, making a statement with orange bangles and hoop earrings.
The modern Makoti by Khosi Nkosi stole the show, making it clear to the mamazala (mother in law) that one can be a loyal wife and still be fashion forward.
