This month, South Africa is celebrating woman and all that they do. If you’re a mother, sister, daughter, aunt or grandmother be proud to be who you are. And what better way to celebrate woman than to adorn here outer and inner beauty through fashion. The Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has just the trends for your #WCW and #slayqueen.
But let’s date back to the reason why Woman’s month was born from such a crucial part in our history. On August 9th, 1956, more than 20,000 South African women of all races staged a march on the Union Buildings in protest against the proposed amendments to the Urban Areas Act of 1950, commonly referred to as the "pass laws". The march was led by Lilian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa and Sophia Williams.
Now fashion isn’t just a platform used for men, especially women to express themselves. It allows all women to come out in their numbers and shout aloud without having to lose a breathe. Effortlessly, I must say. some of the most notable outfits which did just that were designs by Khosi Nkosi, Jenni Button, Tina Ngxokolo, Stefanie Morland, Colour by Nandi Mngoma and Inga Madyibi and many more.
