Global African Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 2012

Written by . Posted in Blog, Features, Spring/Summer, Trends.

“The time has come the Walrus said, to speak of many things” One of those things being the trends which managed to transcend across borders uniting African designers across the globe in their collections, regardless of how ecclectic and diverse we witnessed them to  be. Here at HauTe we believe in being the shepherd rather than the sheep when it comes to setting personal trends, though of course its our obligation to bring to you the latest from around the Globe, (hopefully inspiring you and your wardrobes for the coming months ahead). Below are just some of the popular picked trends which have been merged straight from the catwalks of New York Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, South Africa Fashion Week and London Fashion Week; take a look.
