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.

The final collection of the event was by Palesa, House of Mantsho, and it was soo worth the wait. Her creativity and passion was showcased throughout her collection and it left everyone super inspired and wanting to buy all the things.
