Almost 27 years of democracy, we still have prominent brands that haven’t transformed to reflect SA as a nation.

And this is indicative in last week’s announcement of the judging panel for the 2021 SA Fashion Week (SAFW) New Talent Search.

On January 27, SAFW announced that they are proud of the judging panellists for the 2021 SAFW New Talent Search. Unfortunately, like many South Africans, we are not impressed.

Paris Men’s Fashion Week, Settling Into Digital Format, Offers Glimpse Of New Normal

Once again, PFW men’s fashion was relegated to a virtual audience. The pandemic altered the men’s Spring 2021 fashion shows last summer to pivot to online presentations save for a few determined brands who showed live.
