Joburg is apparently the twenty-first most fashionable city in the world (ahead of Cape Town, Miami, Barcelona, Rio and Mumbai) according to the Global Language Moniter survey. I wouldn’t get too excited by this survey as it measures how many times fashion is mentioned in relation to a city online so its like measuring who has the biggest mouth rather than actual style (surprise that Jozi does well on that…). Saying that checking out the front rows over at Robyn’s Style Guide Cape Town the jozi crowd are looking sharp. On the runway there are already some distinct trends: plenty of black, white and metallics (wasn’t that supposed to be winter?) mixed with ruffles, feathers and frou-frou ago-go-go. Basically if you look like a wild west show girl from the future on her prom night you’ll be terribly fashion forward this summer…
