FRIENDS LIKE THESE /// JAMADRAMAGLAMA STYLEJAM

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.

FRIDAY PARTY PICS /// ATHI-PATRA RUGA A.K.A UNCLE'S TOUCH @ EVOL

For someone who likes to party as much as i do i'm really not that big on music and as i've mentioned before i'm pretty pathetic at booty shaking, although in my youth i've done a fair amount of it on many bars, speakers and tables. Blame it on the arrogance/ignorance of youth, such a beautiful thing. With the exception of my sister i don't come from a very musical family, when we were kids my dad didn't really like it when music played in one room could be heard in the rest of the house, so now i'm kinda the same and when i am alone at home it's almost always quiet. Don't get me wrong i do like music, but i like earphones even more. I fear i might grow up to be one of those horrible neighbours who calls the cops on your ass just as the party starts to heat up, lord knows i've knocked on a couple of neighbour's doors already. My partner on the other hand suffers from the opposite condition and has a rather large music collection that gets played at a volume my father would not appreciate, so you can imagine how well that works out. It's not that the music isn't great, it's actually a fucking excellent collection. So i'm over the moon that APR has found an outlet for the dj'ing tendencies, and is actually damn good at it, and no i'm not just saying that for the sake of domestic peace or for sexual favours, although the latter is always welcome. Always. For my part I get to entertain my teenage ho fantasies by hangin out in the deejay box all night. It's a win-win situation skat.
