I’m wearing RuffTung in the Glamour SA April 2018 issue

April 10, 2018

When Glamour SA editor-in-chief Pnina Fenster asked if I wanted to be featured in the April issue, my heart skipped a beat. You know she’s my girl crush, right? The brief was to show a non-red carpet event outfit which I felt most glamorous in.

Without hesitation, I catapulted images and a blurb of a RuffTung jumpsuit I wore back in 2016 to her. Little did I know, the entire issue, Pnina’s last for Glamour SA, would be an ode to South African fashion and design, and that my fave RuffTung designers would grace the cover. I couldn’t make this up even if I tried. Take a look.

Museé Yves Saint Laurent, Paris

March 4, 2018

To know fashion is to know it’s history, and by history I mean learn about what led the designer to that moment in time, to that collection. It’s easy to sit front row and critique creativity; more often than not spew an opinion based on how well the hospitality bar is stocked. Not cool.

I visited the Musée Yves Saint Laurent in Paris on Tuesday afternoon with no expectations. I often pride myself on getting to know designers beforehand which allows me to formulate opinions of their collections after the show. This visit was different as I’d not done much research on the history of YSL.

SA Menswear Week AW18: Zeit Geist does it again!

February 16, 2018

A fellow blogger called it when she described the Zeit Geist model line up at SA Menswear Week as a gene pool which didn’t need chlorine. OMW! Designer Maxine Ginsberg Mauerberger sure knows how to pick them.

SA Menswear Week AW18: Will the real Rosey and Vittori please stand up?

February 12, 2018

Who are Rosey and Vittori?

Not the people but the brand. Their AW18 show at SA Menswear Week revealed very little of an original and cohesive collection. We saw Gucci’s snake and Kenzo’s eye. Even a Balenciaga-style Bazar Shopper with Gucci straps, and snake, tiger and floral badges. We saw palm prints, oriental prints, velvet and snow-washed denim.

It looked diabolical!

SA Menswear Week AW18: Magents amplified #MeToo

The SA Menswear Week AW18 shows kicked off the South African fashion circuit on Friday 9 February. Hosted by co-founder Simon Deiner and his team, we’re seeing this event – now in its 7th season – grow in stature from a hot as hell basement parking lot at the V&A Waterfront to Cape Town City Hall, nogal. Someone’s doing something right.

I have so much to tell you, from slow-dancing with Duncan Pape in the Belvedere Vodka lounge to my interview with hottie model Jimmy Ogunlaja for Spice TV. *cringe* But all of that will have to take a back seat as I need to talk about the Magents show.
