Paris Fashion Week 2018: Day Three Outfit of the Day

I revel in drama. I am a situational extrovert – which means, for the most part, I am an introvert who is able to manifest a sliver of social skills & graces, when necessary. One polarizing personality trait that stands in defiance of this fact, is that when I am aware I look good, I…

There are 4 titan fashion weeks in the world – New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week. Known to bring in hordes of dictators of taste, influencers, multi-million dollar brand sponsorship’s, global publicity and iconic nightlife energy, fashion weeks are not to be underestimated, as they are profit-churning career-makers, and trend-setters.

New York Fashion Week 2017: Day One Outfit of the Day

New York Fashion Week has been at the top of my list of pop culture ‘bucket list’ ventures since I understood the idea of personal style and the realm of taste-makers. I joyfully stepped into Day 1 of NYFW Sept. 2017 with the utmost exuberance, spurning my excitement on with thoughts of the famed vibe…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town: The Fashion Week that was’nt

Windswept. Meager. Disorderly. Woefully inadequate. The truth of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017, was that of a weathered offering falling apart at the seams. This piece of indulged mediocrity by the AFI – Africa Fashion International organization, was collectively mishandled on so many levels. The Drama The Public Relations flavor-of-the-month to handle the re-emerging bi-annual…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 4

You didn’t think I’d leave you without a closer did you?! My darlings, I left the best for last, because Day 4 had some of the most exquisite haute couture designs out of Africa. Not to say my non-haute-couture outfit didn’t pass muster; as I put significant effort into being “Cream Queen” – as A…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 3

 Day 3, and I was tired but still wired – like I had mainlined caffeine after running a marathon. I tell you, high heels are not for the faint hearted. Anywhooo, after returning to my hotel from Day 2 of fashion week, I edited and uploaded some pictures to my Instagram, and then promptly passed right…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 2

I checked out of Fairlawns Boutique Hotel (with much sadness çuz I miss the tub that was in my room) and took a Uber to The Clico Hotel where #MBFWJ16StyleDuo were invited for lunch. Monde and I put our EyeSpy sunnies on, selfie’d up while awaiting our meal and drinking a light white wine, and…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 1

My tastes tend to tilt toward the side of decadence. However, the admission of a sense of style, and embracing exquisite taste, is oftentimes vilified as the closest sentiment to blatant materialism, and impacts the world of fashion and lifestyle development quite profoundly. I came to this discovery during Day 1 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg…

Klaas in Session come Fashion Week 2015

When I first got word that Mercedes-Benz had decided to, once again, take up the mantle of chief sponsor for Fashion Week in Cape Town in association with Africa Fashion International, I got so excited. Theirs is a brand that thrives on marketing a kind of lifestyle which straddles the fence between middle class decadence…

Ollie in London: The Days that followed Fashion Week

Following London Fashion Week, and the scrumptious food consumed during said week, I turned full-on tourist. I gave up the stiletto heels for functional shoes, big coats and scarves. One thing I can say about world travel is that once you know what vibe you’re into, you’ll find a mellow way of getting to it…

London Fashion Week 2015: Event Review

I expected more. I expected to be awed by an unparalleled sense of decadent historical nostalgia, contemporary style innovation and pure wonder at the annual spectacle that celebrated British fashion and implied subsequent creativity. What I got was something that paled in comparison. I don’t count it to be a fault on my part for…

London Fashion Week: Day 3 Look

First of all: HOLY CRAP! Today’s weather went from tolerable cold to “Dear Lord! Save me!” I barely survived the walks between Fashion Scout’s runway shows at Freemasons Hall and the official London Fashion Week base at Somerset House. Today I wore a faux fur jacket by MilQ & Honey with some durable leather boots,…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town (Review)

Let me begin in relaying my thoughts on fashion in the steady lilt of beautifully enunciated narration, such as the ones currently made popular in North American cinematic offerings: “Fashion is the chaos in one’s soul, which allows the birth of subjective perfection. It is finding the imperfect breath-taking. It is where things fall apart,…

Save the date: Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2014

This event is usually the time for designers unveiling their Spring/Summer 14/15 campaigns. The objective AFI lists when it comes to fashion is primarily the promotion of…

Cape Town Fashion Week 2013: Streetstyle

While experiencing the wonders of Fashion Week, I ran into some wicked outfits. While some I questioned, because clashing prints are weird to the appreciation of aesthetic my mind has, I saw people being adventurous and I loved their use of color. I noted one of the Luxo Magazine folks rocking a pair of white…
