JOIN Skattie, what are you wearing?'s FACEBOOK FRIENDS

Thursday, July 28, 2011


Last year some friends and i put together a print extension of the blog, in case you haven't seen it look to the  top right of this page for a pdf download link. We had so much fun putting it together that now i've got a few more friends involved and we have started work on a second issue. I have invited some of my most talented friends to contribute a diverse range of works which covers a new school of South African creative expression. The contributions include photography, design, mixed media artworks and written works. The work is coming in and we're seeing very exciting stuff. i had to share this one with you, it's just a sneak peek btw, there's much more pics in this set. This is a contribution made by my friend Jamakazi Thelejane, she is the one in the pics. All the clothes she is wearing are from her shop 'Fruitcake Vintage' in Jozi. The styling is a collabo between her, her business partner Sthembiso Mngadi and Nombulelo Maringa. The photography is the work of Siphiwe Giba, that bit i'm a bit jealous of, i so wish my pics looked this good, one day is one day. If you've been with us from the beginning you might remember that Jama was my very first post when i started this blog back in 2010, so i guess it's fair to say that her uncompromising approach to style was and still is a major inspiration behind this blog. I swear if i lived in Jozi i'd be shooting pics of her all the time and posting them up daily. Anyway I've also featured her a couple more times here, here, here and here, in case background is your thing. Can't wait to publish the full shoot in the Skattie Print Editorial.
