Si­nazo Yolwa

The pre­sen­ter and model has trav­elled the globe, but says for her, jeans take the cake.

“I know that we are sup­posed to suf­fer for beauty, but I like be­ing as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble when I travel, and when I go to Lon­don, I al­ways find my­self at the Bices­ter Vil­lage.

“It's just out­side Lon­don, and is al­most like Ac­cess Park in Cape Town. They have all sorts of de­signer brands at very dis­counted prices. So I al­ways get my Guess, Karan Millen and even TK Maxx jeans, all for as lit­tle as R200 to R300,” she says.

So­phie Nd­aba

So­phie al­ways finds her­self trav­el­ling to beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tions around the world, from Thai­land to Italy, but says that on her trips to Singapore, she buys the tra­di­tional garb that Sin­ga­porean women wear.

“I have a beau­ti­ful tra­di­tional dress from Singapore that I ab­so­lutely love. It is a colour­ful, bold-print dress and is al­most the same as what the flight at­ten­dants wear. When I re­cently went to Dubai, I bought their tra­di­tional shawls that they wrap on their heads. That’s what I love about trav­el­ling to dif­fer­ent places, they all have th­ese spe­cial things.”

DJ Cleo

DJ Cleo trav­els abroad to in­dulge in his favourite brands.

“I bought a lot of G-star jeans abroad when Fabi­ani still had the sole li­cence to sell them in SA. In SA they sold them at ridicu­lously ex­pen­sive prices. Lon­don had a wide range at rea­son­able prices.

“I re­cently bought two pairs of exclusive Burberry sneak­ers in France,” he says.

DJ Cleo cau­tions: dou­ble check ex­change rate prop­erly be­fore mak­ing any pur­chase over­seas.

“I once bought Guffy sneak­ers with­out check­ing the ex­change rate. The amount was dou­ble what I had ex­pected to pay.”
