ESSENCE fest is one of the most epic events around — it quite literally is the living and breathing embodiment of #blackgirlmagic. 

It also brings out the fashionistas and fashionistos in full-force. So of course, with the festival currently taking place in Durban, South Africa our sisters and brothers there are not disappointing in the festival fashion department. 

These ladies and gents are giving us serious style envy, and proudly flaunting their most fashionable wears. To get in on all the ESSENCE Fest Durban fashion action, keep scrolling.
