Zanele Muholi Exhibition: Brodie Stevenson Gallery

On Thursday I went to the opening of the solo exhibition of Zanele Muholi at the Brodie Stevenson Gallery in Braamfontein.  I really don't want to sound like some kind of pseudo art fundi because I'm really not (I aim to be soon though) but I like the concept behind this exhibition.  It's called "Inkanyiso" which means "light" in Zulu (it's also one of my good friend's names even though he calls himself Kevin now).  Basically it's a visual commentary on the "complexity & fluidity of gender" and challenges our perceptions of gender roles using really beautiful portrait style photographs.  I liked it.  May not be your cup of tea but its certainly worth a look.  It ends on the 5th August. 

On another note: spotted quite a few very interesting, very stylish art types there but this is a picture of my friends Sthe and Thato.  Sthe is one of the owners of Fruitcake Vintage - one of my favourite little vintage stores in the CBD at Fashion Kapitol.  I love these two and their sheer dedication to looking well styled EVERYDAY.

A day in the life of...

Just when I thought my days on the social scene were fast approaching an end, I had the privilege of attending not one, but TWO fab launches in one day AND still managed to fit in some work and a home cooked meal at the end of the day;-)
The first one was in the morning & was the launch of Season 4 of Tropika Island of Treasure.  This time the 7 celebs & 7 regular contestants (plebs) are off to Cancun Mexico to compete for the R1 Million prize.  Some faces you might recognise include; Poppy Nthongwana, DJ Zinhle, Tshepo Mogale, Tracy McGregor, Slikour, Joelle Kayembe & Phila Mazibuko.  I have no doubt this is gonna be a fun one.

Then the evening came & I headed off to the opening of the new "Religion" store in 44 Stanley.  If you don't already know, "Religion" is a London based clothing brand that draws its inspiration from the early 90s London punk scene.  Very young, edgy, a little dangerous... very early Kate Moss vibes.  I love the new store... it's absolutely beautiful even though I didn't manage to get a lot of pictures because it was so full throughout the night.  Be sure to visit the new store but also make sure that you're thoroughly credit worthy before venturing in there to actually shop... xx
