Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2016

This past week was Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in association with AFI. The event was held in Nelson Mandela Square where everybody came to show off their best fashion whether it was spectators or designers.

This was my first Fashion Week working for the Sunday Times. My days started at 9am till 3pm, after the office I would rush to get done for the events and huridly make it to Sandton in time to meet the street style photographer Chris. The rest of the evening would include me running into fashion shows and afterwards running backstage to source clothing for my editor that we are going to be using in a photo shoot for Sunday Times Fashion Weekly on Monday. Let's just say I managed to get my fair share of cardio in for the week. The next day would include pretty much the same routine as well as me writing an article on the round up of the previous nights event that would be due in the office at 10 am.

I've been going to Fashion week since I was 17 and I've always done Street style and written "round up" articles as a hobby. Little did I know that a few years later I'd be doing it as my job. Having to meet deadlines and run around during Fashion Week can be tiring (especially when work days end at 11pm)but it's taught me so much and for that I'm grateful. Everyday I'm getting a little closer to where I want to be.

Here is my round up of the three days of Fashion Week. I wore Kisua (available online and in Hyde Park) for the first two days and for the last day I wore The Skirt Couturier (Find her on Instagram for more) with a Kisua coat.
