This past weekend we celebrated the best of SA design talent at AFI’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town. We were so excited to watch last year’s ELLE Rising Star Design Award winner, Nicholas Coutts and 2008 previous winner, Anisa Mpungwe of Loin Cloth and Ashes, send their beaut collections down the runway.
‘We would like to congratulate both Anisa and Nick on the incredibly beautiful and on-point collections shown at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town. We can only imagine how much time, effort and love went into making them what they were! We loved Nick’s use of colour, unexpected fabric pairings, texture and flashes of metallic. His faux fur bags have become the current must-have item in our office!’ – Mr Price Ladies Trend Executive, Amber Jones
Anisa Mpungwe of Loin Cloth and Ashes
‘Anisa’s collection depicted the playful and youthful spirit of a woman who wants to have fun with colour, pattern and print. I loved the geometric Perspex cut-out details on printed capes, and the sandals are an absolute must on my summer wishlist!’ – ELLE Fashion and Beauty Assistant Maybe Corpaci
