BEHIND THE SCENES


Yasss! The launch date for the new collection is approaching fast, I am so excited to share these behind the scenes snaps with you. I love them because they show the hard work and the fun we had shooting the campaign, and all the styles. The new collection will be sleek, minimal and available in all black. I can't wait to share it with you soon!!

Our photographer was my friend, and the ever talented M'c Kenneth, more known for his own fashion blog Little Fashionisto. He is also re-branding and re-designing my website (so many exciting things coming!). Our model Courtney was fantastic; strong in every shot and so pleasant to work with. We have now become good friends and I have had a girl-crush on her ever since. MUA were done by the amazing Ros Ng, who executed her work to perfection and we loved the results! The assistant photographer was Carmin Edwards, who on top of assisting took these beautiful behind the scenes shots. Last but not least my close friend Terry who literally assisted me with all things in between. I am so very thankful for them, and for sharing their talents, time and hard work with me. I hope you love the new collection as much as I do, coming out the second week of November. Cheers!

PARIS FASHION WEEK SS17 PART I

WEARING: Anna Quan Anne Shirt (Blue Trim), American Apparel Leather Skirt & Nike Force 1 Sneakers.

The trend of exaggerated and longer sleeves is not going anywhere anytime soon. It was present in a lot of the shows that I attended and in the new pieces for SS17 on display in the showrooms. So I choose this classic French cuff shirt by Anna Quan you have the option to have it monogramed, I choose not to, wanted to keep it cleaner.  Photos by Natasha Ndlovu.

Now here are some snaps of Paris Fashion Week from my iPhone, my highlight was seeing independent & emerging designers kill it alongside all the big and well known brands. Below is the Masha Ma show that I had the privilege of attending, my two favourite looks both happened to be power (yet fun) suits! The show was located in a cool-raw concrete building close to the Eiffel Tower, the music was loud and the models were drop-dead gorgeous.
Next is the Wanda Nylon show; the location was an empty warehouse by the water. The clothes were sexy and fun, the lights were dimmed. I especially loved the earrings at this show. I am so very humbled by the opportunity and experience of attending the shows and being able to go to the showrooms. I am feeling really inspired for my own brand and designs; dreams and goals are good, let us chase them!

CRISS CROSSING IN PARIS

WEARING: THP Lab Gigi Tunic, American Apparel Skirt, Nike Sneakers, Vintage Prada Bag & Celine Shades.

Long time, no post. Sorry for the delay, but I am still overseas in Europe - at the moment back in Paris, which is the reason for some of the silence. I am active on my Instagram if you want to see some of what I have been up to, check it here.

Here is one of my Paris Fashion week outfits. This beautiful Criss-Cross Knit Tunic by THP Shop; the weather has been quite nice, allowing me to show some skin and wear high slits, I styled it with sneakers to bring the sexiness down. If you don't recognize where I am, it is the Palais Royal, in the First Arrondesiment of Paris. It houses the Ministry of Culture, it is also one of the favorite locations for big brands like Isabel Marant to showcase their new collections every season. It is an exquisite building and at the rear there is a beautiful garden. If you ever have a chance to visit, I recommend it.

Over the next few weeks, I will be working on preparing updates about what shows I attended during PFW and the outfits that I have not shared yet on Instagram. Stay tuned, a lot of good things are coming soon!
