The non-stop fashion week ride hurtles towards Gauteng and Joburg Fashion Week. Nice to see Thesis are back on the schedule again. I first met the Thesis guys at the Soweto Showcase at the first spring/summer Joburg Fashion Week. Really nice guys and a great story (which they milked shamelessly and I admire them for it). They come from an area of Soweto that’s nicknamed Baghdad (similar levels of gun fire apparently) where they have a store selling their own brand as well as a couple of other Soweto designers. These guys have an entreprenurial fire to them and their collections are getting slicker – although this is street fashion not couture obviously. If you’re going to Joburg Fashion Week check these guys out!
