Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg AW 2016


Local fashion talent will once again be under the spotlight from 10 – 12 March 2016 at Sandton City’s Nelson Mandela Square, as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg (MBFWJ) shares some Autumn Winter 2016 fashion inspiration. Organised by African Fashion International, MBFWJ weaves the eccentricity of African heritage and history into contemporary notions of fashion.


From urban street fashion to chick ready-to-wear couture and avant-garde designs, fashion week audiences can expect on-trend style and a deluge of inspiration as we head into the cooler months, here in South Africa. In addition to showcasing womenswear, MBFWJ will be presenting menswear through the collections of Selfie, Carducci, Millie Collins and David Tlale.

Tlale showed last year at MBFWJ following a much praised debut of his collection at New York Fashion Week. This year, Tlale will present the first young designer talent to be nurtured under his wings in a show aptly named, The Intern.

  1. I would love to win tickets I’m into fashion and have never been to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week as the tickets were always sold out. I’m an aspiring fashion designer and would love to see what the trends are for the next season.
