accreditation

 Fashionistas seeking the most fabulous fashion-forward few days should spend some time plotting their route and their diary for the four days of the city of Gold’s most exciting festival of fashion, taking the following top tips into account: Screen Shot 2016-03-10 at 12.11.11 PM · Style experts suggest choosing something a bit funkier and unusual than what you would normally wear, with a standout signature accessory or style element helping you stand out from the rest. Don’t wear ball gowns or show too much skin either.  · There’s a lot of rain forecast for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg (MBFWJ), so make sure you keep that elegant stride down the corridors and across the square by wearing shoes that look great, but that will cope with the wet – and sometimes uneven – floor. · Tell the world what you think about the most exciting fashion event this year on the SABC GlamCam, which gives aspiring fashion reporters and established fashion fans the opportunity to tell it like it is. (It’s fabulous, of course!) · Make sure you’re properly equipped to deal with the day’s excitement by stopping for a free cup of tea or coffee at either the Five Roses Tea Station, or the Lavazza Coffee Bar, situated in the activations area on the upper level outside Forever 21. · In too much of a rush to mend your manicure before heading out to MBFJW? Never fear, the SOHO Nail Bar is near! Professional manicurists are on hand to help you navigate your way around the season’s nail colour trends. Also in the activations area. · Get ready for celeb-spotting! South Africa’s most popular personalities from TV and radio will be on hand to view the latest offerings from South Africa’s leading established and up-and-coming designers. · Look out for fashion’s up-and-coming talent in the AFI Fastrack show, which introduces collections by Marquin Sampson and Tayla Shan Ngukos for the first time.
