“All designers undergo a strict curation checklist, ranging from design signature, through to their ability to produce. We’re flooded with applications, but only the best make it through the 12 member curation panel, and even then, we only have space to accommodate the 35 best who topped all criteria.”
Making it through to represent Nigeria on the catwalk, Orange Culture and Mai Atafo will present their latest collections, with Tokyo James’ debut line set to take a stroll in SA too. See the schedule below.
Team SPICE can’t wait to see what walks the ramp at London, Milan, Paris, New York and South African Menswear Week, but tell us which designer you’ll be looking forward to seeing the most in the comments box or online @SPICETVAFRICA.
