kate and alix-rose are two talented cape town locals who i’ve come to know via twitter (the internet never ceases to bring me joy it seems). kate is a copywriter with a great penchant for fashion, and alix-rose is a photographer whose work i’m always excited to see over at her blog. they’ve done some pretty awesome self-motivated shoots before, so i was thrilled when kate asked if i’d like to feature their latest collaboration. which. is. amazing. i might have said “holy eff balls” when i first got a sneak peak. the colour palettes alone are enough to make me weak at the knees.
Fancy Pants. photographed by alix-rose cowie, styled by kate desmarais, modeled by lee-anne johnson, cover page by michael tymbios (who i previously posted about here). the shoot took place at cape town city hall (which is the most exquisite location i’ve seen in a while) and much of the clothing was sourced from nice people at the You Me and Everyone We Know market – the last one of the season is happening this friday.

the ones2watch is an online magazine that showcases the fashion industry’s up-and-coming photographers, stylists & other peeps behind the lens. if you’re seeking some inspiration i suggest you browse through their past issues. i was particularly taken by this editorial that was photographed by ross trevail & styled by lena dystant – who you may recognise from many street style blogs as basically the coolest girl on the planet.
