I threw this question to my followers on Instagram a few days ago and I was stunned by their responses. 98% think this flared sleeve dress is mustard yellow. The tag on the dress also claims mustard yellow but it is orange! Even though I am not the most skilled when it comes to identifying colours, I cannot

When it comes to dressing, most working women are looking for convenience. We want an outfit that can transform from day to night in seconds. We want to go from the boardroom to a night out on the town. Is there an outfit that can do that?  Yes, there is. In fact, there are many.

The AFI  Cape Town Fashion Week  2018 was abuzz with the who’s who in the fashion industry. The event was a mix of masterclasses, runway shows, pop-up shops and most importantly, culture. Unlike Paris Fashion Week, Lagos Fashion Week or SA Fashion week to name a few, Africa Fashion International (AFI) celebrates and recognises talent in fashion from the African continent.
