Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town: The Fashion Week that was’nt

Windswept. Meager. Disorderly. Woefully inadequate. The truth of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017, was that of a weathered offering falling apart at the seams.

The Drama The Public Relations flavor-of-the-month to handle the re-emerging bi-annual…
