Style Africa interviews the Adventurous, Colourful and Outgoing South African Fashion Influencer
FASHION & LIFESTYLE PR PRACTITIONER | FREE-LANCE RADIO/TV PRESENTER | SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER | STYLIST | BLOGGER
I’m lucky to have turned my passion into a career, it has allowed me to understand my clients and their vision a lot better, but also how to achieve more than just the set goal.
One of my highlights has to be launching my blog: The Boy On The Park Bench, an outlet for my fashion ideas and goals. Styling celebrities and attending A-list fashion events that allow me to grow my brand and love for the world of fashion
My style is unique, structured, more is more and always looking for that wow factor. Nudes for men, the man bun and prints are trending in my world. South African Fashion can only get better.
We’re very much on-par with the international standards especially from a creative output. Local designers I recommend you watch Craig Port. Ruald Rheeder, Mzukisi of Imprint and Adriaan Kuiters – they’re pushing the envelope to spite trends. International: Balmain, David Tlale (I don’t see him as a local) and Khanye West – they stay within their lanes but still push out collections far beyond the required seasonal trends. They pioneer trends.
In the next two years you can expect a Fashion & Lifestyle PR agency, a space for fashion creatives to collaborate and expressions of experiences via The Boy On The Park Bench.
STYLE ADVICE FROM SHIRAZ REDDY
Less is not always more, live a little and don’t fear the word “style” we all have our own personal version of it, so express it, even if it’s in a simple ring, bag, shoe or a full look, take the first step and the rest will follow. Also dress for your body size, remember colour can make or break so don’t start to bright or to dark and lycra is not for everyone.
