Joining our FaraiToday family is our South African Entertainment Correspondent, Allegro Dinkwanyane who attended the 2010 South African Fashion Week this past weekend in Johannesburg!

So very noticeably absent from this year’s 2010 South African Fashion Week was the previous years presenting sponsor, Sanlam. But the party still rocked on without them albeit on a smaller scale!

Allegro reported that the South African designers proved critics wrong at this year’s 2010 South African Fashion Week. DM Classic was exactly that, a classic on that night.

The collection included a range of men’s items that could come in handy during the 2010 World Cup. Head designer, Dennis Maponya, the son of South African businessman Richard Maponya explained that “the collection was inspired by bikers and the way they carry themselves and of course the world cup as we want to show people that we are proud to host the 2010 World Cup”. DM Classic were diverse and bold (which made a statement), with bright purple, beige and black used as the color scheme.

While interviewing Dennis, he also mentioned that he had been invited to showcase his clothing in Italy at the Giffoni Film Festival. He also has hopes of gaining exposure in Milan, Paris and New York City.

All the best with that Dennis!!!
