I am so proud of Anthea Pokroy for the smashing success of her debut exhibition of 'I collect Gingers' at Circa Gallery in Rosebank. It was truly amazing to literally see the streets of Rosebank crowded with cars coming to see her collection of over 500 ginger photographs. It's been such an honour to watch this project develop and grow. Congrats, Anth!

I think that one of the greatest gifts of film is the ability to see life as we never would have been able to view it with the naked eye, it makes us realize that even the most mundane of actions are constructed out of beauty. For me photography immortalizes this beauty capturing the essence of a moment, forever. Ian Crawford’s ‘splash dresses’ epitomize this . . . and more.

Oh how much I have missed you little blog (and my deepest apologies to my 2.5 readers for being so tardy). Although it finally means that I am finally busy with real work, I do miss this outlet. So without further adieu, here are some of my snaps from SAFW. Always so inspiring to see local talent flourish!

I think that for the first time (in a commercial) South African retail has come into it’s own. Strong, powerful, relevant, international, and beautifully local - I’m a huge fan of Legit’s new commercial. This makes me want to go to Legit far more than an ad on ‘T shirts R29.99’. . . let's pray this starts a trend in local fashion advertising.
Big up Legit!

Ever since Kate Moss stepped out onto the streets of Primrose with THAT pair of tattered denim shorts, I've been a huge fan of the little denim devil - in this case less is definitely more - Add Pete Doherty on one arm and some mud on the other and you have the timeless festival look. So . . . best you start polishing those pins cos this summer the shorts are shorter, the waist lines are higher and the designs bolder.
After taking hundreds of photographs on our trip, there were many that did not crack the blog, but after sifting through the masses there were also some great trends that have emerged for Summer 2012/2013. Since we are on the last (I hope!) cold spell of the season, I thought that this was a good time to give us something to look forward to . . . so please welcome the see-through/flowy/mullet skirt. Because of the light fabric, they look like heaven when you move. Light flowy and ethereal - they work best when the rest of the outfit is kept simple and clean.
