KHS STU­DENT'S GLAM­OUROUS NEW JOB

Go! & Express - - FRONT PAGE - MATTHEW FIELD

FOR­MER Kingsridge High School pupil Asanda Sizani was re­cently ap­pointed edi­tor-in- chief of Glam­our Magazine, a monthly pub­li­ca­tion ded­i­cated to fash­ion and life­style.

Not only will Sizani be re­spon­si­ble for over­see­ing the smooth run­ning of the magazine, she has also been given the chal­lenge of de­vel­op­ing a fresh new vi­sion for Glam­our go­ing for­ward, in or­der to reach out to a new, di­verse au­di­ence.

“I am hon­oured and hum­bled to be tak­ing up the man­tle of edi­tor-in-chief of Glam­our at such a piv­otal time for all women's voices,” Sizani said.

Asanda's ca­reer in magazine jour­nal­ism has cer­tainly pre­pared her for this im­por­tant role.

She has cut her teeth at ma­jor pub­li­ca­tions such as Wool­worth’s Wmag and Des­tiny, while also mak­ing waves as the youngest fash­ion edi­tor at Drum and the first black fash­ion edi­tor at Elle.

Also, in 2013, Sizani was cu­ra­tor for the De­sign Ind­aba Con­fer­ence in Cape Town and was also a mem­ber of the Ber­lin UP Fash­ion Com­mit­tee, a group which helps pro­mote trade be­tween Ger­many and African de­sign­ers.
