Candi In The City Hosted by Candi & Co Takes Over A’la Turka, Yadah Castle
This past Sunday, I took a shot left to the far east side of Pretoria to attend the third annual Candi In The City event hosted by Candi & Co, the sassy company specializing in ethnic hair care. The eastern themed (in the eastern Pretoria) pamper afternoon session was hosted at A’la Turka in Yadah Castle, where they also presented their 2017 Hair Trends Report. The Candi & Co Hair Trends Report, guest edited by Boity Thulo, is a digital publication featuring the hottest in hair trends for 2017. I was commissioned as the fashion stylist for this shoot and had the pleasure of dressing The Candi Guuuurls. Who are also some of South Africa’s recognizable faces and influential gurls in their own respective areas of expertise; Lulama Wolf, Thithi Ntetha, Leanne Dlamini, Zenande Mfenyana, DJ Olwee, Tumi Mohale, Lerato Sengadi and Iman Mkwanazi (wearing a BeeDoo – beaded wig – in one of the shots). The shoot was lensed by the incredible Andile Mthembu. Obvzs, the hair was laid by the Candi & Co hair stylists. So that is how our Sunday was spent, cocktails in hand, laying about on scatter cushions in the garden, getting our nails did, face beat, hair laid, lots of laughter and stuffing our faces with some of that Eastern inspired dishes.
