I had a great meeting with Rick Davy + Michael Johnson of Fashion Week Brooklyn at Starbucks in New York. I am their South African ambassador. You can read about the programs they offer young designers in South Africa to show their collections in New York here as well as about their events in New York + Johannesburg.
There’s big things in the pipeline for us, including a documentary film + more awesome opportunities for South African designers to get spotlighted in New York! As you know my business deals in video profiling, so working on this project with them is right up my alley. Can’t wait to sink my teeth into it, as well as into a shoot we’re planning for March; a campaign around denim with a strong socio-political message.
