The power of female!
An unsuspecting audience was blown away by a dramatic twist at the launch of the Fabiani SS17 collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Johannesburg last night, as women stepped out onto the runway instead of men, marking the launch of Fabiani Womenswear.
The pioneer behind the revolutionary new collection for the iconic brand is none other than highly acclaimed local designer, Warrick Gautier.
Based in Cape Town, Gautier is renowned for his work both locally and internationally, and his collaborations with brands such as Chloe and Louis Vuitton. Inspired by art and his French heritage, Warrick Gautier brings his signature tailored couture of African luxury to the Fabiani Women’s collection.
“We were inspired by the need in the South African market for luxury African clothing tailored for powerful, successful, progressive and sophisticated women.” – Paul, Marketing Manager of Fabiani
In celebration of women’s month, the launch of Fabiani Womenswear marks the beginning of an exciting new era for the brand, established as an exclusively menswear label for nearly forty years.
Fabiani Women launches in flagship stores from 19 October 2017.
