Lehlohonolo Ramathe better known as the model next door is a 22 year old model currently working under Boss Models Johannesburg. This well sculpted Creative On The Move always lets his work speak for him through the excellent work on his editorials which are always aesthetically pleasing.
“I see modeling as a creative art and a way for me to express myself through images in a creative way. There were various people who inspired me to become a model, Yannick Konan, Paul Zirhumana, Toyin and many more these are just a few people that I look up and draw inspiration from their work or the energy that they bring into my life.
I believe that every single human being is unique from the next until a form of comparison starts thats when you loose your uniqueness. For me I would say my look, my dying passion and always striving for more within the modeling industry gives me my edge.
I am currently busy with some new work with Fucking young Magazine its a European magazine, I’m also working with a local magazine called Ilaph’lam magazine. The next step for me as a model would be to sign with a Cape town agency and a London based agency.
I’d encourage aspiring models to never ever compare themselves to other models you are unique and to always do it with passion or dont do it at all.” Lehlogonolo Ramathe

The fashion world would not be the same without the people who bring life to the clothes. We’re talking about models and we got a chance to meet the gorgeous Swati born model and creative on the move, Pearl Ngele who certainly embodies poise and passion in her craft.
“Modelling is not only about being tall and slender, but it’s also about art, fashion communication and acting. My passion is fuelled by knowing that I can be who I want to be without anyone judging me when I model. Learn to take negative criticism as a stepping stone in this industry, it only helps you become better at what you do. Remember that no one can make your dreams come true but you.” – Pearl Ngele.

Lethabo Ribombo is a style consultant at Dash Diva Boutique and a nail technician. She is passionate about beauty and fashion because she believes that the way you present yourself leaves an impression. This creative on the move reminds us that an everyday thing like dressing up can be turned into art no matter the occasion.
“I became a style consultant in February 2016 and it was never quite a calling for me but an opportunity that I embraced and came to love. The passion grew from there. What keeps me motivated to do what I do in the fashion and retail industry is knowing that people value my opinion. I have learnt that everyday has its own outfit and every occasion has its own outfit, dress accordingly but always stay true to yourself your own style. Up and coming stylists and creative in the fashion industry should keep in mind the fact that people have different personalities and personality defines look.” – Lethabo Ribombo

Is winter really the only season in which you can rock your furs? I think otherwise, what about the days when the summer day doesn’t look so bright, and the rain brings on a strong chill of wind. Furs regardless of the season are a timeless must have item in the wardrobe.
Fur has always been thought of as a luxe item. It is generally said to have been among the first materials used for clothing and bodily decoration that marked rank and status in society. It is associated with glamour and lavish spending.
It is still to this day, the ultimate item of Boujee. Fur coats are made differently from many different animal hides accompanied with a hefty price tag most of the time. Here’s a list of the most expensive kinds of fur and why.
1. Chinchilla fur – Chinchillas have a blue grey fur colour and have very thin but dense hair which is extremely fragile to work with. Chinchilla fur is one the most expensive kind of fur to date.
2. Sable fur – Sabels belong to the marten species and have a silkypelt of fur no matter which direction you rub it it in. It is one of the most expensive furs right after the chinchilla.
3. Stoat fur – Stoat fur is well known to have been worn by catholic monarchs and was deemed a highly sophisticated kind of fur, the ernime pure white stoat ranks as one of the most expensive furs.
If you’re looking for a classic fashion item that is both warm and glamorous invest in a classic fur coat. Sometimes we all want to feel a little Boujee.

Campbell Meas is a performing artist, director and sales assistant at Parooz Fashions located at 70 Juta Street, Braamfontein. She is a young energetic creative with a passion for performing arts and fashion.
“I believe, fashion is the easiest and one of the most basic forms of self expression, it’s also one of the more fun ones especially here in Braam. You could walk outside and see the most quirkiest outfits, that alone gives you confidence to rock whatever you want to wear and own it. To all the up and coming creatives trying to break into the industry, I’d just say do you and believe in yourself one hundred percent. There’s no room for doubt, believe in what you have and go for it.”
