Hola guys & dolls!

We got you the first look of some of the runway fashion of day one of the Arise Cape Town Fashion Week!

So day one, the Cape Town Fashion Council (CTFC) presented The Graduate Show featuring the work of alumni of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, the Design Academy of Fashion and the Cape Town College of Fashion Design.

The CTFC also presented The Fresh Show featuring first-time designers, including underwear label Undacova, Tarien Malherbe and Black Coal by Pumeza Mekuto. Homegrown Cape Town brands such as Misfit, Sway, Doreen Southwood and Tart also presented a the CTFC Graduate Show.

The Foschini/Nokia Design Awards New Generation Show rounded off Day One. This show included Lalesso, a brand known for bold prints & beautiful summer wear and debuted Michelle Ludek with her classic, fashionably feminine designs!

From the looks of day one fashion showings, Spring and Summer 2009 in Africa (& rest of the world) is going to be haute, haute, haute!
