03 Jun #MyFabulous with Skip
Skip is launching a new Fabulous Edition Pack and to celebrate they are collaborating with three designers from three different cities in creating collections inspired by each of their fabulous cities and the stylish people who live in them – Durban, Cape Town and of course Johannesburg.
Fashion Designers Sibu Msimang (@SibuMsimang) (Durban), Jenevieve Lyons (@Jenevieve_Lyons) (Cape Town) and the incredible Rich Mnisi (@Rich_Mnisi) (Johannesburg) are all going to be designing a collection of 10 looks inspired by the unique and different styles of their respective cities.
The lovely Tshepi Vundla, Crystal Klasper and I have all come on board to be Rich’s cheerleaders and want you to all get involved too. Simply share your inspirational photographs on Instagram under the hashtag #MyFabulousJHB to inspire Rich in creating his collection.
Beautifully grimy and edgy; the Johannesburg CBD is filled with beautiful pockets of visual inspiration and on Saturday 6th June 2015, Tshepi, Crystal and I will be hosting a #MyFabulousJHB InstaWalk in Braamfontein and Newtown Johannesburg.
Everyone is invited to meet us outside Daleah’s (6 De Beer Street, Braamfontein) at 10am to kick start the Johannesburg leg of this exciting campaign. We’ll be giving away Nifty250 vouchers on the day, and one lucky person will win an InstaLens.
If you can’t physically join us for the InstaWalk, you can join in on the hashtag fun by posting pictures to inspire Rich’s collection with the hashtag #MyFabulousJHB. You can also participate in the @SkipSouthAfrica Instagram challenges that will be run every week in June asking for your interpretation of the colours, textures, shapes and other themes that define your favourite city’s look.
On the 13 August 2015 you will be able to see how the designers have interpreted all the images they’ve seen over the last few weeks and how they’ve incorporated them in to wearable fashion at the Skip Fashion Exchange, as well as stand a chance to win your respective city’s collection to the value of R50, 000.
