I mentioned that Thesis were one to watch before fashion week. To recap they are a Soweto based label and store that first showed at the Soweto Showcase at the start of 2007. You can definitely see that they’re maturing as a label as they were pretty much just a t-shirt label to start off with. As well as running the label, and their ongoing obsession with dungarees, they also run a shop in Soweto selling other local designers. Couple of trends to note. Yup there is that neckerchief thing. And the tartan shirt – tartan is a bit of a micro-trend with the joburg/soweto fashion kids (see also the Ama Kip Kip boys). Nice shoes as well.
