A month or so I was given the incredible opportunity of contributing to the November issue of Wallpaper* Magazine. For the last two weeks I have haunting the aisles at Exclusives and other purveyors of good magazines, and it is officially out! It’s a huge honour for me to read my name (middle name included, of course) in the pages of a magazine that I associate with impeccable taste, strong writing and an appreciation of all culture.
The November issue features Wallpaper’s top 20 reasons to be in countries the likes of France, Portugal, China, Canada, Sweden, and, of course, South Africa. I interviewed and wrote about four Capetonian creatives/platforms that I think are doing things a little differently.
Get your pods on the latest issue of Wallpaper* to find out why Crystal Birch, Cindy Poole from The Summit, Jenna Bass and Hannes Bernard from Jungle Jim and Murray von Hirschberg from Enmasse are giving the rest of the world a reason to keep an eye on our country.

I wanted to devise a clever title for this post – something to do with Mememe being 3, TWO being 2, and missmillib being 1, but it refused to manifest! In any case, three two one is a good ‘n traditional countdown to something great and novel. Which is fitting, when you consider that the fashion forces listed above are collaborating on a new venture due to launch on the 1st of April.
Doreen Southwood of Capetonian success story Mememe is opening a new store in Parkhurst along with Milisuthando Bongela of Pulchritude and Gina and Caren Waldman of TWO. The store will also feature local wares from the likes of Selfi, Black Coffee, Take Care and the lovely Megan Fogarty of Oh Dear, Megan, so you know it’s bound to be good. Sounds like it’s going to be a frock store to reckon with.
Read the full details in the press release below. Definitely going to have to nip up to Jozi for a peek when things come to fruition!
