Africa Fashion International: Suzaan Heyns Joburg Fashion week 2011 autumn/winter collection

Last night Suzaan opened her show with an abstract video showing a woman lying on a table as if she had no life in her, then her 'makers opened her heart and fashion breathed through her'. Needless to say that sounds a tad dramatic but her show was out of the ordinary. She portrayed, what i felt, a Star Trek fashion collection but one that was made wearable, with colour accents of nudes, skin tones, creams, orange/browns and greys. Detailing included leather accents, plaitted fabrics, layered clothing, jackets and coats that have honestly never been seen before. The ambiance was dark  and dramatic yet captivating.

She blew the audience away with her new world of wear and i dearly hope we will see her garments on the streets of south Africa soon.
