Marie Claire South Africa November 2018

Marie Claire South Africa is an iconic, trendsetting title for discerning, fashion-conscious women. It's a brand of depth and substance and offers a journalistic angle on issues not covered by other fashion magazines.

The brand provides content not found anywhere else in South Africa: dynamic, picture-led reportage, real women’s stories, critical reporting and sophisticated fashion and beauty across age categories. Please note: this digital version of the magazine does not include the covermount items you would find on printed newsstand copies.

making his mark

While taking a break before his final year as a BCom Accounting student, Mzukisi Mbane spent some time at home behind his mother’s sewing machine. There he found his true love: fashion. With a passion for storytelling and the imaginative use of fabric from his mother’s offcuts, Mzukisi experimented with designs that told stories about African identities and histories. His efforts to connect with the fashion industry led Mzukisi to local designer Leigh Schubert’s 2012 fashion show. He attended as a fashion intern for African Fashion International. As models walked Leigh’s clothes up and down the runway to the pulse of Florence + The Machine’s song ‘Seven Devils’, Mzukisi was mesmerised and transported into a future where he saw his clothes doing the same.

stress (your skin) less

TAKE IT EASY Stress can manifest in various ways – dry and dull skin, rapid ageing, breakouts and conditions like eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. It can also cause the skin to be more reactive and sensitive. This is because stress triggers the release of the hormone cortisol, which can increase oil production (making you more prone to pimples) and generally cause all-round unhappy skin. TO THE RESCUE A good rescue cream will sooth irritation or dryness caused by stress.
