Living Original

Let’s admit, for the longest time we had convinced ourselves and low key still believe that “big things” only happen in Joburg or Cape Town. Am I wrong?

I mean yes, we cannot deny that those cities have set the bar for the industry – whether it be fashion, music, photography etc but if there is one thing we can take away from 2016 it is that Port Elizabeth or furthermore the Eastern Cape as a whole should not be underestimated.

I recently attended a fashion show in Jeffery’s Bay for a brand that prides itself on the notion of Living Original – to authentically and wholeheartedly embrace your heritage and who you are as an individual.

“Khoi Kulcha exists as a brand and business to celebrate and give some sort of identity to a community of people that has been forgotten by far too many for far too long in South Africa and to promote originality. We encourage all religions , cultures, races, and tongues to be proud of who they are and where they come from.”

Each garment looks as though it tells a story, the wearer/customer’s personality shines right through. That’s what it is meant to be, who you are and what you represent should be evident in how you dress – living original.

In its intimacy, the fashion show taught me that it wasn’t only about the showcasing of clothing but a means of building a community – bringing people together, creating a family.

And that is thee most important thing, without family without community essentially there is no brand & Khoi Kulcha knows and implements that well.

The future holds nothing but extraordinary things for a brand with such a beautiful message

& a huge round of applause to Rochey Walters, Dorianne Syce and the team for the amazing work they do.

What an honor it was to be apart of this night, anticipating next years show.

stay beautiful, stay blessed
