This week’s line-up will also feature veteran designer JJ Schoeman who will celebrate 30 years in the industry.

At the opening party last night, Schoeman shared some of what he would like to see over the next decade.

“Fabric manufacturing for all our local kits and all our new designers and established ones. I want to see China leave the country and South Africa take over its own thing.”

Nevertheless, he revealed very little about what to expect from his collection. Anyways, why let the cat out of the bag, only ticket holders will get the first peep before it goes viral.
