A special treat was offered to Moscow fashionistas - «Africa Explosion» - a lengthy showcase of South African fashion designers. This special feature attracted a great deal of press attention, with the designers and guests from South Africa themselves in attendance.

      ERRE (pronounced “Air”) is the brainchild of Natasha Jaume and Carina Louw. The result of their collaboration is a label that focuses on quality fabrics, tactility, craftsmanship and the perfect fit. This time the label from Pretoria did not only focus on black shimmery leather, with long, flowing black dresses giving the small leather vests and jackets a beautiful and complete look. 

      MaXhosa by Laduma was up next. The Johannesburg brand stays true to its roots which are deeply entrenched in traditional Xhosa culture and patterns. Designer Laduma Ngxokolo uses traditional knitting and beadwork methods in his work, with mohair and merino wool sourced specifically from South Africa. Bright and beautiful patterns in knitwork is an uncommon sight, and visitors loved the beautiful approach to knitted pullovers, skirts, dresses and sweaters Ngxokolo took this time. Models cut imposing figures in these striking traditional garments.

      Ekta Kalan of EKTA presented her collection afterwards, with her looks inspired by, in turn, South Africa, Portugal and Spain. Beautiful dresses and skirts of deep shade of emerald green and jade were coupled with soft pink and ochre tights and jackets. Perfect geometric patterns made each garment look very unique. A beautiful collection reminiscent of traditional African art and 20th century European and African impressionist works.

      A collection by Rich Mnisi rounded up the «Africa Explosion» portion of the day. The LISOF graduate and Africa Fashion International Young Designer of the Year award winner founded the label in 2014. With a global view catering for the world market, the brand is young at heart and explores the treasures engraved within Africa and the world of modern culture and heritage to tell the unique stories of then, now and soon. All this packaged in extreme yet minimalist structures which take design and craftsmanship as the first and foremost motivation. This time Mnisi showed us a bright set indeed - zebraskin patterns and traditional art combined with modernist ideas on the fashionista-about-town looks, each coupled with a giant wide-brimmed semi-transparent bolero hat - for both men and women. An exciting finale to such a diverse and talented set of designers from South Africa.
