SAFW S/S17 : DAY 1

SA Fashion Week is both stressful and exciting at the same time for a blogger or anyone else in the industry for that matter. It's so fast paced and on most days you only have about 10 minutes between shows. This year I attended all five days of SA Fashion Week as media which took an incredible amount of planning, there were a few glitches here and there but we made it and have the images to prove it.


Day one was probably the most stressful day of them all. By 8:30am I was already making my way to Sandton to pick up a few last minute items to complete my looks for the week. Thanks to traffic I only had an hour to spare at Sandton before I had to dash off to my hair appointment at Ambience Hair Salon. My next stop was Mall of Africa where I had to quickly exchange a pair of sunglasses to complete my look for day three before heading to get my makeup done by Bobbi Brown. I enjoyed my time at Bobbi Brown, the girls kept me entertained but what I loved most about them is how passionate and knowledgeable they were about the brand. My makeup was done by Sharleen who has been with the brand for 8 years.

I made my way home in the knick of time but at least my hair and makeup was taken care of so all I had to do was pick out an outfit. Day one was brief, I attended the Woolworths Style by SA show which was one of my favorite shows by far. All the pieces fresh, unique but most importantly they were wearable which was a major selling point for me. Doing one show on opening night prepared us for the craziness that was about to come on day two.
