Leaping into Spring

There is something revivifying about spring; an effect that inspires a new outlook and a refreshed closet. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg Spring/Summer 2016 burst with a vibrant and colour-rich display of cheerful palettes, soft lines, light fabrics, delicate detailing and spring-inspired prints.
The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer Lookbook leaps into spring, with a chic fluidity and a certain energy that evokes a sense of movement and optimism for the new season.
Through a select curation of emerging and established designers, the lookbook tells a seamless narrative of grace, beauty, energy and success, with looks that explore and best capture the theme of a season in bloom.
