It all happened so fast. One day I was being introduced to him and the next I was shooting with GQ Man of the year, Menzi Mcunu.
My trip to Cape Town was meant to be purely holiday but I have come to realize that as a travel blogger, I can never truly be on holiday. I mean the whole purpose of traveling is to create content and share a thought or two about the places and people you come across, right? Lol
I can categorically say that very little gives me more pleasure when traveling than linking up with other creatives to collaborate. The buzz it gives me is next to none. The whole of Cape Town is filled with picturesque locations which makes it a blogger dream city. So, when Menzi reached out to me a day before to say he was arranging a shoot, I was so on it. All I had to do was show up and smile for the camera.
We got in a taxi and headed to parliament street where we were meant to meet Menzi. In true gentleman style, Menzi made me feel welcomed the minute we shook hands. The Cobra sports car literally arrived 5 minutes after we got there and it was shoot time. Menzi had organized the whole shoot from picking a location to hiring a photographer. It was so much fun from start to end.
I find it interesting that a lot of Londoners do not know about London Collections Men (LCM). I have lost count on the amount of times i receive a blank stare whenever I mention LCM to people. I am like, where have you been? But of course, not everyone is into fashion right.
Just in case you are reading this and do not know what LCM is all about, it is a bi-annual event (January and June) where everything pertaining to men’s fashion is exhibited through runway or presentation. Designers and fashion houses showcase their best designs for the coming season so that buyers (wholesale) have the privilege of product live before putting in orders.

There was something about print shirts that made me look the other way whenever I walk into a store. I couldn’t quite tell what it was but prints made me feel slightly uncomfortable to even trying one on.
Could it be the very casual nature or was it the lack of versatility that kept me away from prints? For someone who loves to mix and match outfits to create my unique style, versatility of a garment is very important. Continue reading The Print and I→
It’s Friday today and I am still recovering from the hustle and bustle of last weekend’s London Collections: Men fashion show. I love weekends like last week. I get to see the best of what fashion has to offer and meet like-minded people who share my passion and creativity. I get a sneak peak of what’s coming up in men’s fashion and get to deliver that to all of you. If you haven’t done so already, check out my post on LCM.
I promised to give you guys a run down of the outfits I wore to LCM
