I attended the end of year showcase of the Informatics and Design department at Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
The opening night was celebrated with a show by the Fashion Design students.
Frances Miller opened the show with a colourful, voluminous assault on the senses.
I loved the all-out creative energy and theatricality of her collection.
It was also very cohesive, with the big top / circus / ringmaster theme carrying right through.
I always appreciate that!
Frances carried off the big prize of the night, deservedly so.
Frances also won the Football Fridays Fashion Funk (that's a lot of F's!) competition earlier this year with this fabulous frock.
One to watch for sure!
I loved the fluid romance in Rampai Motsau's collection.
The ribbon loop dress is a feminine dream and the tuxedo dress is such a clever update!
Chantel van Soest has a clear signature with a soft, vintage feel.
She should've put her own dress on the ramp, it was one of my favourites!
These three designers impressed me with their confident sense of identity, but the group as a whole was quite outstanding.
