Mai Atafo at the South African Autumn/Winter Menswear Week


There’s been a lot of requests and advice from friends to expand my blog’s content by being more inclusive. Some guys have been vying for posts that have male content and that is one of the reasons, I couldn’t let designs from the A/W South African Menswear Week just go by without sharing it with you.


The designs from the event are amazing and it showcased all the bests of African male designers. There was swag, vibe, culture, class and a smooth James Bond look.
