Fashion lovers expect high-end fashion and mind-blowing experiences as the SA Fashion Week is well underway. The annual event is one of Mzansi's most prestigious events in the local fashion calendar, and it kicked off on a fashionable note on Wednesday night.

While we love attending events, but securing a front row seat at a runway show is truly an amazing experience, and thanks to our friends at SA Fashion Week for inviting us.

SA stars came out in their numbers to bedazzle at the Cruz Vintage Black Vodka launch party which was hosted in Sandton, on Wednesday night, and they lived up to their norm of inspiring, stealing the show, and causing a camera flashing frenzy.
