When Thula Sindi told me prior to his show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Joburg that it was going to be largely black and white and cotton, I was disbelieving. After all Thula is known for his love of a glamorous lady. A woman of substance and power and panache. But what Thula delivered began...

Immediately after the Tart show at CTFW last night I tweeted that it was a "fashion editor's dream" collection. Let me explain. The colour was so vibrant, the fabrications and design so fluid and the silhouettes so accessible to the large majority of ladies, that we know that our readers will...

This is the way I review a fashion week - first I attend all the shows. Then I look at the images the next day with a fresh head. I already know that the collections that have disappointed me on the basis of bad fabrication or slack finish will not be mentioned. But in the image review I let...

But suffice to say that this was a slick and professional presentation of stimulating resort wear that wouldn't look amiss besides Michael Kors, DvF and others should they wish to bring their resort lines to Cape Town. Hm? How about it? Photos as ever by SDR Photos

And Thula Sindi. Ah, Thula. This man clouds my fashion judgement by being the warmest heart in the business. He knows his market of fabulous, strong women who like to dazzle when they dress. He makes mature, statement pieces for the ladies who like to be noticed and love him as much as his work
