South African Instagramers to look out for : Fashion Girls

Instagram is great platform to display a personal creative aesthetic and self brand, and there’s no lacking within the South African creative community. Each week we’ll display the multitude of  brilliant Instagramers that are making waves in their own ways.

This week we have the Fashion Girls, each with their own unique vibe and enjoyable aesthetic.

First up is Nandipha Mqoco

Nandipha is a student at the university of Pretoria and is not new to the realms of fashion.She is a self proclaimed fashion enthusiast, and with sisters in the industry, Yoliswa- a stylist and  Thobeka- makeup artist, she helps them out from time to time and expands her skill set in the fashion industry. She has a great minimalist style and occasional pops of colour coming through on her page adding a bit of fun to her overall aesthetic.

Next, we have Kelly Fung

Kelly is a fashion director at Superbalist, and her Instagram definitely displays why. Her pages is playful and has a lovely whimsical nature. When asked what her take on fashion was and any future visions she had for herself that she’d like to share, she shared this with us: “For me, fashion goes beyond clothes. It also goes beyond an expression of individualism, what makes fashion so important and fascinating, is that it affects everyone whether we like it or not. It’s a representation of our time, in its purest form. I think everything from from people choose to wear, where they buy, how they buy, the reason for certain shapes, colours, designer success etc. all gives a true understanding of where we as society are.”

Last, but definitely not least, we have Frances Pryce Lewis

Frances is a fashion student and designer from Cape Town and studying at FEDISA. Her page has a gorgeous pastel palette and captures opulent details strikingly. She describes her design aesthetic as feminine and youthful, with her primary inspiration being derived from nature and exuding it in forms of beading and embroidery. Her designs make use of a soft colour palette and often feature hand-painted textiles. One day, she would like to be seen as a influential figure in the South African and global fashion industry, and she’s not too far off.
