Well before African fashion was considered a fashionable topic and the ankara fabric gained momentum in the West the way it has, Ladybrille Magazine predicted “African inspired blouses and dresses will become main staples in the West like the modern takes we see with Kimonos.” We were seen as ”very ambitious” with[...]

Last week Thula Sindi told BBC, he wouldn’t “be caught dead” in the new designs by the ANC promoting FIFA 2010 in South Africa. That is exactly how we feel about some of the designs he showed this season at Audi Joburg Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2010. The Ladybrille women in us would[...]
