So who are these DESIGNERS , you ask ???
HUNADI is a signature clothing brand for the tasteful and discerning individual. Attention to detail and immaculate finishes are no less than a given flair adding a sense of distinguished elegance.All Hunadi garments are proudly produced in South Africa by a team of highly skilled and passionate tailors. Our flagship store is situated on 25 Newport Road in Parkwood, a serene but central location in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg South Africa. The Spring/Summer collection is called Cloth Girl and is inspired by a setting in Ghana – West Africa, where we also sourced fabric for this collection. A key element of the Hunadi brand is the celebration of the African woman. Hunadi celebrates her strength, resilience and elegance. The lines in this collection are very feminine and timeless. Easy to wear and yet very distinctive. We accentuate the woman’s waist line throughout the collection –an element true to Hunadi in celebrating the woman as she is and not how the world expects her to be. The collection will be launched at the New York Fashion week this September. Hereafter we will have a private viewing and launch with the hunadi customers and the media.

KIYOMI COUTURE takes pleasure in providing you with one-of-a-kind, quality pieces to complete your classic fashion repertoire. Responding to the upwardly mobile, discerning woman’s need for unique fashion items, Kiyomi Couture hand-picks pieces from New York, Hong Kong and Dubai. We have some of this season’s freshest New York looks in store! Flattering jumpsuits for your classy nights on the town, unique day and night dresses and colourful work-to-drinks tops for that perfect transitional outfit. Kiyomi Couture – distinctively you

MORPHE means “to transform outwardly.” Morphé has a strong style signature feel and offers pieces that the wearer can easily incorporate with her existing wardrobe. Layering and interaction between the wearer and the garment is encouraged by pieces often being able to be worn in more than one way. This outward transformation allows the wearer to embrace their own individual tastes and personalities in a distinct ready-to-wear label. My clothing is a lot like dress-up for grown-ups, since it tends to have an edge of playfulness to it. I think that my clothing would attract wearers that feel excited about wearing both colour and texture, clothing that celebrates being alive. My new SS13/14 range showed at MBFWCT13 was very focused on offering the customer more pieces that are updates from previous key pieces such as the kimono dress that forms the DNA of what Morphe stands for : modern and comfortable ready to wear clothing.

This is defo an event all Fashionistas should not miss out.

Hello everybody. ………. My name is Verushka. …… And I love entering and winning competions.For those who follow me on Twitter know that I have been having a lucky streak.

Earlier on today, my cousin asked if I had visited http://www.winstuff.co.za.  I hadnt and boy was I surprised at how many competitions were just on this one site. Come on now,  we all love winning the thrill of winning immediately is such a huge boost to one.

So i decided to explore this website which was very simple to navigate. All the competitions were put into categories so I could choose what type of products I wanted to win. The site is made up of all the free online competitions in South Africa but with all on one page. Electronics and Fashion and Beauty immediately sparked my interest.

Wow mindblown at the large variety of Electronic products I could enter to win from phones to laptops to ipads.  No guesses what I will be doing tonight:-)

My other favourite category had even more amazing prizes up for grabs yipee,  excited bunny over here.

I love entering competitions and winning them is even a bigger thrill to me.  I never knew that there was so much out there until I started entering competitions on social networks.

So do yourself a favour. …… Go to http://www.winstuff.co.za and check out their amazing competitions. …. Who knows you might even win and become addicted like me

Goodluck
