Traditional Dresses play a very important role in expressing a persons’ style and culture on South Africa.

Many ancient rulers have left a visible impact on the Modern Traditional African dress and its history. Traditional Dresses in South Africa have evolved over the years, processed leather and dress fabrics have replaced the Leopard skins and cow hides, pleated skirts have replaced the reed skirts that were worn in the past. 

The African Traditional dress has become a big part of the global fashion Trends. African Fashion Designers have creatively incorporated traditional African dress designs to be relevant and carry the cultural significance into the modern traditional dress designs.
