Personal Obssession

In these couple of days I wonder of in the streets, at school and just at events and I just woke up one morning and had this undesirable but tinkly feeling and obsession over Albino's. He does it for me ----> Shaun Ross.

Look Of All Cenuries 
He featured in Katy Perry's E.T and from there on his modelling career became a tonic bombshell. He embraces to sides to a person the artistic and albinism part. He is a shocker model. Boom, in your face kinda guys. Brace yourselves with these hott, yet delectable pictures. (^^,) 











Whats that word again.... #iCant. Dead. 

More To Come on Albinism, Fashion And Modelling . *(^_^)*

Athenkosi Bonga Mali


A little twist and twirl with the Fabulous Athi and sparks raise. Have a look at this Fashion embracing kid.


A student at the University Of Johannesburg with a lot of beneficial love to Fashion. He graces our presence with attending world class events "Marie Claire" where he says "what inspired me about that is people being recognized and awarded for their success in their passions".


Why do you like Fashion so much, what do you enjoy the most when you see a person walking down the street with boldness and looking fierce?

 Fashion is life, we live it breathe it wear it. When you say ‘Fashion, to me it means, looking good. I make sure I feel good and look good at all times. It makes me feel good about myself.
 One thing that I like is someone that has self confidence. To me that person understands themselves well, and knows what they want.


"I love Fashion, I’m just idealistic in the way I dress. I know and understand what doesn’t".



Who is you style icon and what is your style?


I'd say Rachel Zoe. Yeah, she is just one of those that just do them on the daily (different and stylish) and when it's time to qasha (bust all over).
I could never define my style. It never stays the same. I just like looking fabulous…lol

CLUTCH CULTURE :


What is your muse?!

I try to draw inspiration from everything that I come across. It takes a "whole" person to create something, meaning that every part of me, be it my emotions, thoughts or surroundings are collectively inspired by different things to make me this whole person.



How long have you been doing this! When did you start designing and how did the passion arise? Do you think Clutch Culture is noticed around the world?! Where do you see your line in a year from now?!

I started designing in July 2009 and just perfected my first simple clutch into something that represented who I am better. When I got to that point that is when Clutch Culture was launched in May 2010. There are little pockets of places around the way that have taken notice of my brand. As time goes on more and more people will definitely come to know of the brand. A year from now I'm hoping to have the clutches being carried in a few boutiques across North America and in Africa as well.




What have you done in the Fashion World that has made a difference? Who you have collaborated with? What the reaction was? 

To be honest I don't think I can even say that I have made a difference. I'm still crawling and haven't even learnt how to walk yet, so the extent of my influence is very minimal. However, as I mature in this industry and get on my feet, that will DEFINITELY change. Because of where I am in this process I haven't collaborated with anyone as of yet because I'm still trying to get to know myself first and only when I figure out what I want to do is when I'll put myself out for that next step.




Muse Mo Handahu 


How do you describe yourself looking at the kind of collections you make! Describe the person you are and how people see you? Give 5 words that mostly describe you?
I'm this random, fearless, lover of color who is not afraid of trying something new even if it's a big flop. I'd rather try, fail then find a way to better the concept I have in my head. I would like to think that people see me that way too. I try to be as transparent as I can and realize that I will fall short SO many times but I believe in progress not perfection. The five words that describe me that come to mind are QUIRKY, GIGGLY, FEARLESS, GOOFY and LOVING


Where do you reside and do you embrace where you come from?!
I currently based in Canada and DEFINITELY embrace my roots. I'm half Zambian and half Zimbabwean and growing up in Zimbabwe has made me who I am today. There is no way that foundation can never be the glue that holds together everything that I do.



THE WORLD OF FASHION :


What do you think of the latest fashion regarding the ladies of today?!

I'm loving that right now there is a lot of individualism when it comes to person style. Everyone is honing in to their inner self and letting their personal style shine without feeling the need to conform.

Do you think women recognize bags or they are into clothing!

I think they are almost at par just because of the co-dependant relationship of clothing and accessories. You may own more clothes than you have bags, but at the end of the day, when you put an outfit together, the bag pulls together the look


SIGN OFF

And what kind of encouragement would you give to young ladies out there?!

Everyone has a gift, explore different things to figure out what is yours and when you do, be the best possible doer of that thing. Constantly remind yourself that it is only you that will ever do that thing the way that you do it. No one did, is doing nor will ever do!

If I Had This Moment.

Kyle Clark


As the Co-founder of V.I.N.T.A.G.E he defines himself as a  full time choreographer, performer, model, T.V Presenter and Vocal Artist. To put the cherry on the cupcake he earns a living by working as Accounts Manager. “Someone has to pay the bills” he says. What a resume in my eyes. 

What is your style?!
  •  My style is a mixture between Retro 80’s and a Modern Quality Touch of Commercial. I like to keep it Classic and Plain.

Who is your style icon?!
  •  (Laughs)  Of course, my fashion icon? I have plenty plenty! First of all, one of my biggest fashion icon at the moment is actually Manthe (Sick ‘n’ Tick) who is part of Vintage. She is amazing. Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake and the list goes on and on, but most importantly Lady GaGa!! Talk about killing stereotypes… That Lady makes my life.

When did you develop the style? And what is your favorite thing in your clothing collection?
  •  I developed the style when Vintage was formed before that I was a “Free Spirited Hippie”. I didn’t really care too much about Fashion, until then. My favorite piece in the collection, has to be my mom’s very old 1970’s Long Meriwether Trench Coat, absolutely fabulous. Plus all the cardigans, ripped T’s (as that is in right now) and anything animal print now, when the ladies and I feel like being a bit more dramatic than usual.

What is Vintage to you and how do you define V.I.N.T.A.G.E?
  • Vintage is a definition of Fashion meets Dance, taking 2D Images and making them 3D. They are everything to me, my rock and my next step to where I need to be in my career and life.


What’s your position at Vintage and what have you done for the Waack dancers so far?
  • Yes , I am indeed. I am one of the founders of V.I.N.T.A.G.E. Basically we have created a platform for dancers that are expressing how they feel, we started Vintage to kill stereotypes, to be different, to show people what Dance is really about. We focus on the core of dance and our main inspiration is the need to inspire others. We were formed to bring back Love Of Dance Back to South Africa.

How many people are involved in V.I.N.T.A.G.E?

·         Started with only four members
·         Members being : Mother K (Myself), Kim Ninjaa (Lee-Che), Sick ‘n’ Tick (Manthe) and Roman (Ash) And our new fresh Krump Queen who recently joined us, “Miss TNT”.
We are growing to new heights and we will be hosting auditions extremely soon to fill the 3 Letters to the word V.I.N.T.A.G.E, so inevitably we will be 7.

What competition have “V.I.N.T.A.G.E” joined and won in the long process?

·         We haven’t really entered competitions as Vintage only started 7 months ago, but we have accomplished so much. We are humbled, we did however enter Masters Of Rhythm 2011 on Vuzu. Where we placed 4th, we weren’t really pleased by the placing. We were more worried about getting the message out there. Getting our movement going, we were so happy to experience the joy we did, when receiving feedback from our fans who we inspired to bring out “The Real You” and that was our “Movement”.
