South Africa’s Fashion Week (‘SAFW’) has really only been something I knew from TV, fashion magazines and the internet. So being invited to attend was pretty huge for me. And so started my SAFW journey! Clothes, hair, make-up? My preparation was real. And so I settled for understated glam, smokey eyes and glowing skin.
The vision of SAFW has always been to nurture an appreciation for South African fashion and create brand awareness amongst consumers both locally and internationally.
After seeing what I did on Saturday evening, I couldn’t be prouder. Well deserved standing ovation House of Ole.
Firstly, South Africa’s designers are beyond talented. Secondly, we are a damn good looking nation. And thirdly, we have street style down to the T. Period.
My outfit details:
Neckpiece – Zulu Lulu
Top – Woolworths
Skirt – Rage
Shoes – Zara
Clutch – 32Clothing
Have an amazing Monday gorgeous readers 🙂
It’s Women Crush Wednesday!!! And we are obsessed with this talented beauty!!! RACQUELINE RAH GOVINDASAMY!!!
She studied and qualified as a professional makeup artist in 2012 at Face To Face. She obtained an international diploma in cosmetic makeup with distinction through City and Guilds and runs a professional self-improvement workshop monthly, where she teaches everyday women how to achieve a professional makeup look.
She’s worked on Gospel Gold, and was the chief makeup artist for the Kitten Emporium Playboy Shoot and has been recently booked as the chief makeup artist for a feature film on Mzansi Magic (to name just a few of her sensational credentials).
This weekend, she comes to Durban to host a GIRLS DAY OUT called the “Makeup By Rah Workshop” which will feature Acrylic Game, MILA fashion district, Joy Ragebult Choreography and Zulu Lulu Accessories and will be held at Hashtag.
“The reason I started this makeup workshop is to empower women of all ages and ethnicities who aren’t able to afford to study beauty or have no time to do so. Some women feel defeated by the images that they see on the pages of glossy magazines, they don’t know what goes into making the models look the way they do. Through teaching makeup I aim to motivate, encourage and uplift those who have been scarred by the opinions of society, by aiding every woman I teach with the tools she needs to find her self confidence.”
So if you are in Durban, bring your girlfriends out and spoil yourselves this weekend.

Date: 25th October 2014
Venue: Hashtag (18 Lillian Ngoyi Road, Windmere, Durban)
