The Launch that is.

I sssssseriously need to stop gushing about my friend, but what the hell are blogs for if we can't practice legitimate nepotism??? Firstly, I've just come back to life from last night's "o*v*e*r*h*a*n*g" from the My London Shopper Launch that was at The 12 Decades Art Hotel at Main Street Life. What a fantastic event, full of beautiful clothes and even more beautiful (black) people. I have to say black because it's very rare to have only two white people at such a chic event (dankie Jenny Andrew and Melissa Maxted). Anyway, be it South Africa, it's not about race. This event was about the clothes. Sindiso Khumalo, who is a Central St Martins graduate is taking a few South African designers to London through her online shop. These include Black Coffee and two new labels I had NO idea about - Selfi and a beautiful Cape Town based menswear label called Simon Deporres and Canadian label called Norwegian Wood. It's kind of Pulchritude on the next level - internationaaal. Her website has just had a makeover and it's growing slowly so if you can, pay it a visit and support South Africans doing wonderful things. Here are some pictures from last night. I especially loved Sindi's Vivienne Westwoodesque outfit and Vie in the Norwegian Wood top (I kept asking her to shake her boobs all night cos of the tassles on the top)and ORATILE SEABELA - that stylish little monster XOXOXO. Well done also to Miss Thithi for doing the PR. You guys are re-making up the heart of South African fashion. xxoxoxo
This last pic is of one of the 12 Decades Rooms. Amazing.
