I'm so happy this guy won. It was so difficult to keep my mouth shut and fingers far away from a computer for a whole 24 hours. I wish I had taken pictures of the whole thing but I'll find some and post as soon as. I think that the reason he was the judges' favourite at the end of the day is because his range was coherent, intellectual, well made and generally impressive for a 21 year old who made everything on one meager Elma machine and overlocker in his garage. I think that the range, like him - was sober, careful and focused but also really beautiful. My first and second princesses though have to be Oriel Barnard and her severely sexy label, Lisp and Kotloano Molokomme and his edgy Afro inspired collection. Pics to follow soon, je promese!
