Three chilling words we’re asking, confronted with the reality of an alarming increase in gender-based violence in South Africa. During the production of this issue, the Glamour team wore black in solidarity and joined protesters in support of the #RiseUpWomen movement. Our mood is sombre as we reflect on what it means to be fearless. The dream is to be able to walk through life with confidence and pursue our dreams and passions without fear. I peered through the window of Glamour’s 10th-floor office, shortly after returning from joining the protesters, my ears still ringing from the sound of police sirens and protest songs. As I reflect on the past few days, I feel the need to be surrounded by women to feel a sense of safety and empathy. Now, more…

what’s on our fashion radar?

HOLLYWOOD’S NEW HERO It’s been a big year for breaking barriers, and now our attention has turned to breakout star Nafessa Williams, who plays Anissa Pierce, aka Thunder, TV’s first black, lesbian superhero in DC Comic’s Black Lightning. WOMEN’S RIGHTS Gucci’s Alessandro Michele made a few political statements for his 2020 cruise show, including sending a dress embroidered with a uterus down the runway. CROWN JEWEL Local brand Guiseppina Jewels caught our eye from the store window of AKJP. We love her playful pieces that come in an array of shapes and hues, and that each piece is completely unique. PINNED DOWN By day, graphic designer Nicole Dalton works on beautiful packaging and branding at Jane Says, and by night she runs Ghost Goods, an online boutique with a focus on pins, patches and slogan T-shirts.

Several years ago, when I first learnt I had got a job at a women’s fashion magazine, lots of people wanted to give me advice. It ranged from diet tips to the brand of earrings I should look up. I was often asked, “What are you going to wear?” As the curious parties ran through the respective ‘looks’ of the existing team – one writer wore only monochrome, one had the monopoly on jeans (her wardrobe, reportedly, had 200-plus pairs), another had first dibs on anything with ruffles (yes, really) – my mind went blank. The only thing I could come up with? Miniskirts. I’ve always reached for a mini in a moment of crisis. A statement in itself, there’s nothing simpler than pulling on a short skirt – all you have…

YOUR MOM, STEFANIA MORLAND, IS AN ESTEEMED DESIGNER. HAS HER AESTHETIC INFLUENCED YOU? My mother is my biggest role model in the fashion industry. She has always been there to show me the ins and outs of the business. Her aesthetic and mine are quite similar, but with subtle differences. I design feminine garments that are wearable for every day, while she leans more towards couture. HOW WOULD YOU CHARACTERISE YOUR BRAND’S AESTHETIC? Feminine, whimsical with attention to detail, and edgy. HOW DO YOU WANT WOMEN TO FEEL WHEN WEARING YOUR CLOTHES? Nothing gives me greater joy than witnessing a transformation. I want my designs to make women feel beautiful, confident and elegant. MUST-HAVE ITEMS? An embellished velvet headband finishes a look off charmingly. Invest in unique boots and sandals to add an edge to a feminine…

pan-african fashion featuring nike and the women of speed

No one could’ve predicted what the future held for the Dibabas. They grew up in the rural area of Bekoji, Ethiopia, and their parents were farmers. Perhaps their success can be attributed to a daily routine of hard work and, their mother Gutu says, “freshly squeezed goat’s milk.” Or to their fairly traditional childhood; they attended school and helped out with household chores. Regardless, the siblings are unlike any the world has known in the sport of athletics, so it comes as no surprise that Nike would choose them to represent their running sneaker, the Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2. Designed for comfortable, long-distance running, the shoe allows you to train faster and longer. The mesh in the upper is more breathable, which means it’s lighter than its predecessor. The list of…
