Guys, Free State Fashion Week Is A Thing And We Are Obsessed

💃💃💃

Just recently, local designers put their best ‘fit forward at the fourth-ever Free State Fashion Week 2019 at the Sun Windmill Conference Centre in Bloemfontein. The event saw a celebration of fashion, tourism, art and culture within the province.

Former Project Runway South Africa presenter, Lerato Kganyago, was the official MC of the weekend’s activities, which made everything even more exciting. The main events, which were the fashion shows (obvs), were stolen by designers by the likes of Refiloe Mocwa, Mabel Black and fashion phenom, Palesa with House of Mantsho.

Here Are Our Top Three Runway Shows From Free State Fashion Week:

1 Mabel Black

Mabel Black took home the award for the best collection that went down the runway on Friday night.  She created a collection that embraced her heritage but with a modern and fashionable touch creating the perfect balance. This woman’s collection was fab! If you don’t believe us, have a look for yourself:
