My experiences in fashion blogging
My experiences in fashion blogging

So some might think it was madness that we started writing our own fashion and shopping blog last year (we kind of did ourselves - my sister practically lives at Mr Price, not quite haute couture, is it?).

‘Tabling the label' at Arise CT Fashion Week 09

The 2009 Arise Cape Town Fashion Week went off well, without a glitch. While it may have been smaller than last year's event, it still maintained its glamour. From the mature, sophisticated designs of Doreen Southwood to the sexy swimwear by Lovewaterlove and the classic suave-look that has become synonymous with Fabiani - there was a little something for everyone.
