The heart of Johannesburg has been a no-go area for decades. Moving from commercial centre, through turf wars, slumlords and drug dens: and now, enjoying a new incarnation as a hip, happening regenerated neighbourhood, a la Brooklyn – with art galleries, markets, cool coffee shops and restaurants. And – of course – street fashion. The way we feel about ourselves and our situation is often expressed in the way we present ourselves to the world. Scott Schumann aka The Sartorialist was in town for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and captured these images. World, meet Johannesburg!
