During London's Fasion Week 2011 The Ubuntu International Project was showcased.  Basically the project is developing, promoting and exporting a new South African design led aesthetic that fuses the techniques and traditions of South Africa with South African contemporary fashion in order to create a unique South African high-end Heritage Brand.

"Three South African designers, Stiaan Louw, Heni Este-Hijzen and Laduma Ngxokolo of MaXhosa Knitwear made their debut at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout, London Fashion Week in September this year and the showcase is intended as the start of three year program aimed at nurturing and promoting South African talent on the international stage. “The reason we chose these three designers is they represent the new South African look that is coming through,” says Errol Hendrickse of Ubuntu. “Within their work traditional influences are evident along with a particular heritage aesthetic that translates as a brilliant new fresh aesthetic".

Along with the the amazing clothing the jewelry was exquisite! I love the rough stones and colorful threads on the men.  Tell me would you or would you like your man to wear jewelry like this?  I'd love your thoughts.
