Fashion Portal

September is basically international S/S fashion week month, last week was New York, this week its London, Paris and Milan are next. This is a very exciting time for me. I basically stayed glued to style.com and elle.com for the latest views and news on the runway collections. I wish I could be there on front row, to see the clothes up-close, to see the textures, the colours and the shimmers.
Another interesting aspect of the week is the style of all the fashionistas attending the shows; you see all sorts and all types of the interpretations of clothes. It just doesn't get better than that...you know, it all starts on streets.
South Africa has just wrapped up their fashion weeks; we have a couple (it's not in my place to get into the politics, I just love the clothes), I wish we had intensive coverage though, where we could see the photos and get more info on the collections and show.
Sanlam promised us a fashion portal ( http://www.sanlam.co.za/eng/aboutus/sponsorships/fashion/business+boost+for+fashion.htm ); I really hope it comes through.
They released a SA Fashion Week neat booklet with the show schedules and designers info on last month's SA ELLE, that was really cool.
http://www.women24.com/ does give some coverage but its never as intensive, but its really appreciated, we at least get some teasers of the clothes.
