Glamour (South Africa) - - Advertorial -

MAKHOSI SHONGWE, 26 LEC­TURER

Pur­su­ing her Mas­ters de­gree at the uni­ver­sity of Jo­han­nes­burg, Makhosi was nom­i­nated by her friend who de­scribes her as a walk­ing fash­ion dis­as­ter who hasn’t adapted to ap­pro­pri­ate work at­tire. Makhosi has been told that her cur­rent favourite style items (minis) aren’t a good look and that she can change her style with­out

the fear of look­ing old.

ANEENA Antony, 23 MED­I­CAL STU­DENT

nom­i­nated by her sis­ter-in-law, Aneena hails from East Lon­don, where her par­ents still live. She’s de­scribed as a gen­uine, care­free and friendly per­son, al­ways help­ing oth­ers when asked. But, ap­par­ently, she is the one in need of ur­gent help in the style de­part­ment, which seems to be the only thing hold­ing her back from be­ing su­per­woman.

nozuko gulwa, 33 MOTHER

nozuko’s sense of style is get­ting her into a bit of hot wa­ter with those clos­est to her, es­pe­cially her moth­erin-law, who nom­i­nated her for the show. de­scribed by her fam­ily as a kind and gen­er­ous per­son, her style makes her fam­ily cringe when­ever there’s an event or fam­ily out­ing. nozuko’s mother-in-law de­scribes her style as be­ing so ca­sual, it looks like she’s al­ways wear­ing py­ja­mas.

Madelein smit, 30 RE­CRUIT­MENT Agency OWNER

nom­i­nated by her col­leagues, Madelein is a hard-work­ing mother of two. Her fam­ily and col­leagues de­scribe her as con­sid­er­ate and car­ing, work­ing hard to bal­ance her fam­ily and work life. But they feel that she needs a style up­date to match her busi­ness ethic. At the mo­ment, she doesn’t al­ways make the time to fo­cus on her­self.

Case­ley-ann Har­vey, 22 FI­NAL YEAR COM­MER­CIAL LAW STU­DENT

case­ley-ann nom­i­nated her­self to be a par­tic­i­pant on the show. She was nudged to en­ter by her fam­ily and friends, who feel that as she’ll be en­ter­ing the cor­po­rate world soon, her cur­rent style choices are not of­fice-friendly. Her look is de­scribed as in­ap­pro­pri­ate, over the top and too edgy for her fu­ture am­bi­tions of a ca­reer in law.

Wandile KHU­MALO, 35 MOTHER

Af­ter the tragic loss of her hus­band, wandile had to take over his taxi busi­ness as the fam­ily’s only source of in­come. She’s kept the busi­ness run­ning while tak­ing care of her chil­dren. Her sis­ter-in-law put her for­ward be­cause her baggy cloth­ing, mis­matched colours and dated items don’t help her in the male-dom­i­nated work en­vi­ron­ment.
