Hunter Rose is a Cape Town-born artist who is making all sort of waves in the music interest with her amazing neo-soul sound. She is versatile and I was lucky enough to get a few minutes of her time to find out what makes her tick, what are her life hacks and what is in store for us with her music coming out soon. The Art Study series video with her is below.

Coffee is just coffee, right? Wrong! Had a chat with South African Barista champion @Winston_Douglas as he shared insights right before he jets off to NYC for the Black Coffee event where he will be engaged in dialogue about race and coffee culture.
Zola Msizi is a model and actor from Port Elizabeth, living in Cape Town, South Africa. He is a brand ambassador for South Africa’s cutting-edge formal wear brand C squared. Whenever I see him it is always a vibe, the PE confidence always oozing out and we are on some “Ithini iBuda?” every time we greet each other.

When we’re young we dream, we dream out loud and at the age of 18 most of us stop dreaming, out loud that is, and if we don’t, the people around us don’t understand why we’re still dreaming. One man who never stopped dreaming is Siya Beyile, who as early as in his high school years dreamt of starting a creative agency. Fast forward to today and that dream has manifested itself in the form of The Threaded Man.
It was 2013 and my first internship was with AFI for Mercedes Benz Cape Town Fashion Week. It was mad exciting, there was this red hair girl, very bubbly character, friendly and ambitious named Snothando Mthi. She was in PR and me in Marketing(Branding).
If there is one person in the creative industry who is persistent and puts in the work, it is definitely the village boy in search of gold. Who’s that? Anesu Chogugudza, his a model, style influencer and Markham brand ambassador.
The one memory that lingers in my head, is when I got my first pair of high-top Dickies as a youngin’ ( remember them, I know right! ) . Where I am from, it was either that or Converse All Star. It was a Clash of the Titans, like Nike and Adidas or Apple and Samsung.
My cousin/brother paid me a visit this past weekend all the way from the city of gold. Not to mention he is undoubtedly the biggest AKA fan there is. Meet George Nyoka, very stylish brother originally from Port Elizabeth. My introduction to Zara was through him, the one law he polices me on is: Simplest is key.
His government name Katlego Molaolwa , is what publications such as GQ know him as. I met ” Kat “( cause we cool like that *wink* ) about a year ago, via now Fashion Editor of Destiny Magazine Asanda Sizani, who happens to be somewhat of a mentor and friend to the gentle brother.
Recently met up with Boombap enthusiast, streetwear lover and homie, Luthando Mankayi. I met this guy through Sj Stevens, they were working together at Topman whilst I was at Cotton On, back in the retail days not to long ago. I really admired his streetwear style, he always had these sick jackets. Never the less, we agreed when we return from Initiation School, we’d do something for the upcoming winter and this is what happened.
