JOHANNESBURG - Fashionistas and designers converged on the Joburg CBD on Thursday night to showcase the latest Autumn and Winter trends as the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicked off.

The spectacular show is often hosted inside some of the city's high end shopping malls, but organisers have now swapped to a more edgier and vibrant feel of the city centre.

A massive white marquee filled up Newtown's Mary Fitzgerald Square.

For the next couple of days it will be home to all things opulent including interesting garments, famous faces and local fashionistas.

Although it was an unusually low-key start to the event thus year so far, designers David Tlale, Thula Sind and Andre Martin are expected to draw large numbers on Friday evening.
