This love local post is about two South African clothing designers, that asked me to ‘model’ for their clothing photoshoot. Both Metere DeScotche and GoRD are friends of mine and although their work is very different I love what they bring to the table and was happy to help them out!

I personally love where South Africa is going right now in terms of fashion and music, its about time people started embracing their African’ness whether it be wearing some wax print or listening to OkMalumKoolKat (haters back off yea, I may be of the lighter complexion but I do know whats up!) I think its about time Africa grabbed their culture and ran with it, instead of trying to be the next crotch grabbing yo yo rapper.

Lets start off with Nametsegang Richy of Metere DeScotche the jersey maker from Klerksdorp:
