1. THE MEN’S FASHION TRENDS

EXPECTED AT VDJ?  “With the theme being ‘African  Stars’, I’m hoping and expecting some  vibrant and daring colours. I hope  to see a lot of print, especially Kente  Print from Ghana, and tailored suits,  accompanied with a touch of African  vibes as a statement. Shoulder wraps  and more subtle African-themed  pocket squares this year.” – Mensah

3. DJ NAKED’S TOP FIVE MUSIC TRACKS FOR THE ROAD: 

* Shekinah’s Suited.
*Major Lazer FT Nasty C’s Particula.
*Casper Nyovest’s Move For Me.

*Sjava’s Ngempela.
*AKA’s Fela In Versace.


4. WHICH THREE WOMEN’S FASHION TRENDS ARE YOU EXPECTING AT THIS YEAR’S VDJ?
Based on the theme there are  bound to be a predominance of  prints and a constellation of bling –  after all African stars always twinkle  bright. Colour-wise, pinks and pastels  featured heavily at the Oscars this  year, so I won’t be surprised if we  see these soft shades at the track. –  Kganyago

5. WHAT BAG TRENDS IS GUBEKA EXPECTING THIS SEASON ?

I am expecting to see a lot smaller  bags to be worn by women that can  fit in make-up and a cellphone.  Exotic leathers, such as crocodile  and python skin are also becoming  a major trend this season.  Square-shaped, clean line bags are  big and will carry over to the next  season. I’m expecting to see colours  such as brown, red and mustard take  over the red carpet.
