Audi Joburg Fashion Week, Winter 2009 did something different this year. They moved their fashion week schedule up to permit designers to get their designs in retail stores and fashion magazines in a timely fashion. It appears designers were ready and able to meet the challenge. One such design label that met and executed superb work on the runway this season is Fabiani. Fabiani is a famous menswear retailer in Southern Africa and the design label showed why they are famous.
With great fitted shapes, and use of luxurious fabrics like premium denim, velvet, cashmere, suede and leather, they impressed with some very smart designs fitting for the Ladybrille man.
