Ladybrille African Fashion News #4

Did anyone notice what is happening in South Africa with their fashion Weeks? It is the first installation of their winter fashion week but it appears they are having two winter fashion weeks in the same city. A bit confusing. I am unsure what purpose it serves. Audi Johanesburg Fall Fashion Week begins on February 14-17th. Of course that schedule is a very tough time as the global fashion industry and media converges in Las Vegas for the Magic show from Feb. 13th-16th. Before Magic, everyone runs from New York to London for Fashion Week, February 11th-16th. Of course, what these markets are doing becomes relevant only if SA wants international buyers to solicit their designers, order and have clothes made to be shipped to the West so we African and non-African fashion-foward ladies can have access to shop untill our hearts' content. Right after Audi is the SA Sanlam winter fashion week in March, also a Fall fashion week and also in the same city. Hence my confusion. Now, what is the sense in having two winter fashion weeks in the same city? Am I missing something? Anyway, here we go with our 4th installation of Ladybrille African Fashion News:
