while i didn’t get to go to the full indaba since i was missioning around joburg, pretoria and durban, i did get to sneak in an afternoon on the opening day of the indaba, which is always a thrill for creative types.
saw loads of cool exhibitors, although they were a bit sticky about taking photos. genevieve and i were mainly there to catch her boyfriend’s show – John Sithole of label Earthquake – which was some gothic jozi urban goodness with true SA cues such as Converse shoes and kasi inspired bags.
didn’t catch the name of the first designer but they had this great liquorice allsorts theme going:
and then we chilled at the Cullinan pool for the rest of the afternoon.
