The last few weeks have been somewhat of a whirlwind – I travelled to Johannesburg and back to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday, made a lot of cake and party decorations, caught up with friends and family, visited some cool places that have popped up in the city while I was away, as well as slipping in some work whenever I could (three cheers for being a freelancer!). Needless to say, there has been little time to blog, but now that I am back in Cape Town, you can expect more frequent posting. I thought a round up of nice things, that I haven’t had time to blog about, was the most fitting way to kick things off again. So let’s get going…
A Russian-esque fashion editorial titled Winter Princess, for the December 2013 issue of Japanese Vogue, modelled by Lindsey Wixson and photographed by Emma Summerton. The shoot was styled by Giovanna Battaglia, with make-up by Mathias van Hooff and hair by Neil Moodie.
