Why Fashion Matters
Okay so maybe fashion is the last thing on your mind during this global crisis but a little retail therapy might be just the thing to lift your spirits.
We need a whole of positivity and some inspiration right now. Our president, Cyril Ramaphosa just announced mere hours ago that the number of people infected with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) has doubled. It went up to 116 confirmed cases!
But we all need to live our lives – in isolation or not – and what better way to do that than through fashion, beauty and/or art? Can our love of fashion be just as inspiring during the bad times as it is in the good? I sure hope so.
With autumn fast approaching, I say it’s time for a little retail therapy. Upgrade your wardrobe with a few celebrity-inspired looks for autumn from Superbalist’s newly launched occasion-wear brands. Velvet exudes red-carpet class, with runway-worthy, head-turning party pieces. Blake lets you show up and ‘own’ any room you enter, with daring season must-haves while Milla is a glamorous, flirty brand with the perfect, polished piece for every special occasion.
So whether you’re going to the office or are just doing it for the gram, you will feel and look like a celebrity- literally – in these pieces.

Miniskirts are always au courant – whatever the season. Minnie Dlamini pairs a sequin mini skirt with a statement wrap top. Get a similar look by pairing a Velvet wrap blouse and Blake Pu Zip mini skirt for an African take on Sex and the City.
