From the emerging designers, Martin Steenkamp stood out with his menswear 3D collection, which can also be worn by women. He deserved his fashion innovation award.

Duke's asymmetrical suits drew inspiration from the Xhosa culture, but added a modern flair to it.
Eli Ball's use of sequins and patterns stole the show. We love accessories made from feathers.

Black Pepper's runway had models showing off an all-black range of well-fitted suits and capes.

Brenda Quinn's mission was to bring life to the runway, and she did. The multi-award-winning designer wowed the crowed with her collection rich in summer colours. We love how she combined florals with patterns.
