Hello Beautiful People
Feeling rather chirpy today , the sun is shining and having a good time at work and drafting my second fashion story , Im buzzing. In my spare time at work i go through my blog roll , saving anything intresting and reading as much as i can Education is key always. Your never too old to learn.
For all my international readers you may not be familiar with Miss Pearl Thusi , she's a well know model , tv presenter and mother. I read a fashion friend daily , obessesively would be an understatment. We need more publication in South Africa that support local designers.
Back to Pearl , don't you just love this editorial ? Personally i love location shoots, the clothing, her hair "i died" her hair is amazing major hair envy , we could do a post on just how amazing her hair is , wow oh my hair. Enough about her hair. Love her energy and the retro rock n roll inspired styling "Jimmi Hendrix comes to mind. Black and White photography is amazing the contrast and the casted shadows , give the images depth and emotion.
Down town Joburg the best backdrop for this super cool ,edgy shoot.
Good Day then.

Color , geometric shapes , sheer fabrics and classic structures were the trends at SAFW last week.
Unfortunatly did not get to attended fashion week this year , infact I've never been would love the oppotunity , but one day thou.
I loved Black Coffee's collection , really thought it was fashion forward and on trend , I'm not one to follow many trends but i love the illusion the sheer cat suit and the dresses are giving.
Show skin but don't show to much skin , i also loved Stoned Cherrie but however i do think the peplum trend had been done to death and some one needs to make it stop. I love Stoned Cherrie's use of color , prints and there sexy siliouttes.
We're Africans and as much as i love international trends we need to create our own , were so diverse and rich in cultures , were creative our heritage and past in well known on an international scale. We forget how influntial we are as a nation.
