Tasked by US based Yahoo style, I hit the streets during SA Fashion Week looking for people with unique stories and amazing looks. Johannesburg is always a challenge and I ended up grabbing people after the shows and arranging with them on the following days to shoot them with better light and more unique settings (SAFW is held in a hotel which can a little monotonous). I also wanted to include some of JHB's style legends that I hadn't shot before.

Dean owns Johannesburg oldest hat manufacture. his family has been in the business for four generations and he has recently launched Simon & Mary hats. The hats are hand made with impeccable quality. Albert is their oldest worker and is always dressed impeccably. I shot a quick snap at their factory. (http://www.simonandmary.co.za)
