Fashion Friends invade Foschini head office

After a glam, exciting two-day fashion shoot, we invaded the Foschini head offices in Parow yesterday, along with our fellow Fashion Friends. We were welcomed with yummy cupcakes and coffee in a black and white Coco Chanel inspired room, our fashion hearts leaped up to heaven. We each introduced ourselves to the Foschini buyers, planners, marketing team and the MD himself. Someone say nerve wracking?

Possibly the highlight of the visit was chatting with buyers and going through the latest and upcoming trends. We also played fashion consultants, giving our opinions on all the different garments and sharing suggestions on spicing things up. Talk about being blessed! The day ended with some rather sad goodbyes at the airport. We loved our brief modelling stint and can’t wait to share everything with you come April 16! We also can’t wait to walk in stores and spot ourselves. No, seriously.

Phathu & Mili.

Kimono mono-chrome

A kimono is a fabulous twist to an ordinary waterfall cardigan.

I’m crazy about this oversized white one with lace shoulder detail. Confession: I couldn’t find one in my size. Fortunately, this one still worked quite well for my petite frame.

I picked my go-to basics to complete my look: black leggings and a black top. Can you say monochrome?

Kimono available at Foschini stores.
