And as this wasn’t enough, Julie is also a model! She poses from the age of 16 and decided to join our Fresh Faces contest in South Africa. Since then, she has also been featured on our Facebook page as all of us at Modelmanagement LOVED her red outfit!

Since then, Jerri became my Valentine South African blog, That boy is a machine of style and imagination…Unusual outfits; he dares and poses for the pleasure of (our) eyes! But who is Jerri!? Jerri Mokgofe is a South African fashion curator: stylist, publicist and blogger best known for working with celebrities, fashion houses, modelling agencies, advertising agencies, and magazine editors.

What Jerri inspire you? He is soooo fresh

His style? According to Jasson Alexander Basson from GQ Magazine South Africa :  “His personal style is often viewed as borderline eccentric, but this boy has an immaculate sense of balance. He’s not afraid to experiment, but is certainly never ridiculous. He is moving into exciting new territories that will redefine contemporary masculinity,and encourages men to embrace bold prints, colours, texture and silhouette.” – and frankly, I could not agree more!


So Chic, So Jerri!

3. From Cape Town with Carla

After Nairobi and Joannesbourg let’s go for a ride on the side of  Cape Town, our third and last stop, and meet  Blogger-sweetheart Carla.

Indiana Jones would fall in love!

Her style?  Carla’s style is simple and sincere. She has this capacity to mix a casual and refined item and being so trendy! She would rather invest in a classic item than jump on the next trend wagon. She likes to combine conventional pieces to trendy ones and dressing up in different ways for different events.
