What do we want? REAL Fashion! When do we want it? NOW!” The South African Fashion Week has recently sent out wonderful trend report, depicting threads as recently showcased on the Spring Summer 2015 walkway. Magnificently *insert a wide smile on my face*, whilst carrying an unquestionable South African ID, most of these collections –as confirmed by an in-house analytic, come equal to an international echelon. Talk about Glocalisation. Of course I am super keyed up for all this! So keyed up in fact, that whilst watching some of the shows, I too spotted a trend I foresee to be all kinds of attractive when worn by every single type of woman out there.

Whether in trails a couple of centimetres behind or skims the floor a little bit, the next season’s flowsy and Bohemian-esque maxi frock is nothing short of sexy. I have gathered that the assertion instigated by these designers must signal an appealing proud and refreshing repossession of character for the kind of woman who is likely to wear her femininity in the hemline not far from the ground. There is a delightful sense of effortlessness about the necessity of this redressed movement, yet through an assortment of appeasing designs and bountifully restructured details; maxi dresses exemplifies power at a very soaring degree.

These below are my absolute faves!
