Editorial

Web, magazine, and newspaper features are why I began writing. Certain writers – Vanessa Friedman, Robin Givhan, Matthew Schneier, Leandra Medine, Marjon Carlos, many others – just seem to understand that there is, in fact, some meat on fashion’s bones, substance and story to enjoy if you’re willing to find it. I work hard to join their ranks because I believe in what this work can do. Below, the fruit, in the form of fashion & beauty features, shopping listicles, show reviews, youth/pop culture essays, news posts, and more.

This is probably a good spot to plug my fortnightly newsletter discussing global fashion news headlines, [InsertFashionHere], yes? Yes.

Life & Fashion — Spree.co.za Column (now offline)

When someone offers you the chance to become Carrie Bradshaw, you don’t say no. But I did, as the timing wasn’t great (read: could not possibly be worse) when Marieke Merts asked me to write a regular column for Spree’s blog, The Thread. Thankfully when the timing was better 3 months later, I lucked out when she asked again. I loved writing this so much, first with Marieke as editor and then with Daniël Geldenhuys, and I was truly sad to see it go with the merger. Not just because I was given almost free reign, but because they both cared so much and that care was wonderful to work with. As it is no longer online in original format, I have archived PDFs right here.
