Name: Mlungisi Mpanza
Occupation: Outfit Advisory/Model/Stylist
I’ve always had an interest in fashion. I just didn’t have the platform to showcase my style.Time is what we want most but what we don’t use it well. I realised that I can use the time I have to showcase my art through fashion .Most of my outfits are inspired by the ambiance of Lamontville where I grew up. As we all know that art should disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed, that’s what I’m trying to do in most of my outfits, to disturb the comfortable through clothes. I like to challenge myself and I’m not competing with anyone but myself.
Brown and olive green Nike Airmax ’95 with white Nike socks to compliment the shoes. Black formal pants with a F&G golf t-shirt that matches the pants and the printing on the golf t-shirt compliments the Polo cap. This outfit is inspired by my township Lamontville.
For this outfit I wanted to be cozy, at the same time show the detail of the outfit. I’m wearing a Adidas hoodie, Adidas ZX 850 sneakers, which compliments each other, underneath I’m wearing a Panado t-shirt, a Polo cap and futuristic glasses for luxury
Here I wanted to challenge the audience, by wearing Puma creepers because most people think Creepers are for females because they’re designed by Rihanna. I did the half tuck in with the Evans lazy t-shirt to show the difference it makes and the t-shirt matches the Polo cap. As you see the outfits on my diary all, of them have a Polo cap in them. I was challenging myself with the cap, I wanted to see what type of outfits I was gonna come up with using the cap.
My Must Haves:
Buckle cap, Pair of airmax 95+,97 And 98, Beanie, PALACE or CHAMPION t-shirt, Turtle neck and Jeans.
