feels like summer

There’s plenty to smile about this month. It’s our third issue of a #BrandNewGlamour, and this month, we have featured a dynamic duo – Unathi Nkayi and Roxy Burger. These media personalities, whose staying power in the TV industry inspires us, are wearing designs by local female designer brand Erre. This issue is also completely powered by women. What does that mean? It means every word, every photograph and every stylist behind this issue is a woman. As I observed Unathi and Roxy’s interaction on the set of this month’s cover shoot, I was once again inspired by women from different walks of life bonding over shared experiences. Theirs were early call times (the shoot was at 5am), motherhood, the work/life balance and hair (with Roxy expressing her love of wigs…

Trend analyst Nicola Cooper shares the ins and outs of fashion trend forecasting. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE TREND THIS SEASON? My personal favourite, so far, is the ‘brand revert’.

I don’t have a least favourite. For me, all of them are, at the very least, interesting. But I think it’s important for many people to understand that you don’t have to adopt every trend that exists. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FAD AND A TREND? A fad is a short term burst of extreme attention. A trend is usually something that has a lifespan, and is a development based on the circumstances of the past and the present. A trend…

the female gaze

Basetsana Maluleka WHEN DID YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH PHOTOGRAPHY? I’ve always loved taking pictures with my phone, but I fell deeply in love with photography when I started running my blog back in 2016 when I was studying at the University of Johannesburg. That’s when I knew I wanted to be in the creative industry. I then started connecting myself with the right people and taking it a lot more seriously. That was the best decision I ever made. WHAT HAVE BEEN YOUR CAREER HIGHLIGHTS SO FAR? The Afropunk group exhibition was the very first time I ever saw my work printed and put up on a wall to be publicly displayed. I recently joined the talent agency Lampost as a photographer’s assistant. Working there has always been one of my goals, and…
