Nail the catwalk colours

Thursday, 3 May 2012

With a new partner, African Fashion International dazzled the country in March through its Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg.

Previewing the Autumn/Winter collections of South Africa’s 25 top emerging and established designers, MBFWJ showcased local fashion at its best. But you don’t have to be able to afford David Tlale’s polka dots, Thula Sindi’s shimmering textures or Leigh Schubert’s animal-inspired prints to add a piece of MBFWJ to your wardrobe.

Relive the colour trends vicariously through your nails, without burning a hole in your savings.
