5 Stylish Bloggers Putting South African Fashion on the Map
In South Africa, there’s a new crop of stylish young people taking the blog world by storm. A few are even making their blogging skills profitable.
If last month’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg proved anything, it’s that South Africa’s top bloggers command our attention. Up until very recently, the SA blogging community was left out of the country’s biggest fashion events. That all changed when Siya Beyile, the 23-year-old founder of the men’s fashion and lifestyle portal, The Threaded Man, was commissioned to bring 25-30 of South Africa’s top bloggers under one roof.
“A lot of bloggers never really work in the same space. They’re never really brought together to collaborate,” says Beyile of South Africa’s disjointed blog community. The Threaded Man Experience, which launched at MBFWJ, was about getting bloggers to experience where they can collaborate and work with each other.
With a new digital presence bringing the event to the world’s fingertips, Fashion Week in Johannesburg was forever changed.
We asked Beyile to single out the bloggers that are really putting South Africa on the map. Below, we get to know five of the best style and culture bloggers in SA right now. Read the full article in Okayafrica here:
