Local is so much more than LEKKER!

By now this news is old, and it comes as no surprise that the talent in this beautiful country of overs is just overflowing!! From our music scene to our top designers.. Roughly in the last 4 months I think that its only fair for me to share with you some of the great inspirations that have, are and will be taking the world by storm.

Hailing from sunny Durban, this girl duo is just what the doctor ordered!! They composed of Pam and Christie. They are fresh, funky, soulful and their unique lyrics catch onto your lips!! For more on these lovely ladies check out their website : http://www.myspace.com/thearrowssa or alternatively hit YouTube and watch their music vid “Lovesick” ….

Now lets move onto a fashion front, which might I add has literally just exploded here!! And I am loving every single bit of it. Towards the end of 2010, ELLE MAGAZINE SOUTH AFRICA had their annual New Young Talent Awards. Young designers submit their creations in accordance to the theme, the judging panel select a top 7 who have to create their submissions and show it off at the event. The winner is then announced. And this year, the winner was a well deserving Cleo Droomer.. these are some of the pics i snapped up from the Dec Issue Of ELLE – which might I add is a must have!!

It’s very clear why he walked away as the winner of the competition. A simple, pastelled and structured collection, that combined a variety of fabrics and patterns, which in turn manifested into chic and stylish display down the runway.

And now I bring you the main course… this should be of no surprise as to why my next featured South African designer is making headlines both nationally and internationally. Having dressed some of South Africa’s leading ladies such as Uyandi Mbuli and Bonang M… and now he can add reality starlets Kourtney Kardashian (Keeping up with the Kardashians) and Kirstin Cavallari (Laguna beach & The Hills) to his list.

Now its no wonder why these designs are in demand..
