The Smarteez Refuse to Conform to Fashion Standards

The Smarteez is a group of four DIY designers who are based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Their fashions are fresh to death, with a nerdy twist.

The Smarteez successfully challenge the notion that fashion is mainly a Western interest. Take a look at some of their outlandish wear in these photos by Chris Saunders.
