Fashion activism is when fashion and social or political beliefs merge to create support for or protest against a movement. I've seen quite a few examples of fashion activism in recent years and decided to share the most interesting or stand-out looks in modern times.
Firstly, I’d like to say that I really missed blogging so much over these past few months! I have one last exam to write tomorrow and then I’ll be done with high school. Finally! I am embarking on a new journey in my life and I’d like to thank all my readers for your comments, compliments and overall love thus far.
One of my FAVE local fashionistas and bloggers is twenty year old, gender fluid Luke India. They graduated from high school last year and decided to take a gap year instead of going straight to college. They describe themselves as a makeup hoarder and minimalist. To anyone who knows them, it is clear that they are a breaker of societal standards. I caught up with them virtually to discuss their awesome blog, winter tips and more!
Women’s Month is here and I’m super excited to produce more content based on the trendsetters, trailblazers and queens of our time! I’m kicking off this month with an exclusive interview from successful fashion designer, Brett Robson. She is a shining example of South African women who are not afraid to go out into the world and kick some butt.
Body positivity has slowly, yet surely, taken the world by storm in recent years and it's about time! I asked Jessica Kilfoil, the founder and owner of Sugarplum Swimwear, a few questions about her inclusive brand. Sugarplum Swimwear, based in Durban, specialises in bikinis and swimming costumes in cup sizes for bigger busted ladies with sizes ranging between 32D-38F.
