Sar­to­rial mas­ter­pieces rep­re­sent­ing the icon’s im­pact.

To close last week’s Africa Fash­ion In­ter­na­tional week, de­signer David Tlale show­cased his big­gest col­lec­tion yet fea­tur­ing 100 mod­els and 100 looks. As the run­way show co­in­cided with the cen­te­nary of stug­gle icon and former pres­i­dent Nel­son Man­dela, Tlale chose to com­mem­o­rate this once in a life­time oc­ca­sion with a ma­jor show. Apart from the an­nual fan­fare at the open­ing of par­lia­ment, fash­ion isn’t al­ways thought of in con­junc­tion with pol­i­tics and Tlale said this needed to change. “Peo­ple think pol­i­tics and fash­ion are de­tached, but my take is that pol­i­tics and fash­ion go hand-in-hand, I See Stars will be per­form­ing for the first time in South Africa next Fri­day.

Jo­han­nes­burg’s Ru­mours Rock City has be­come syn­ony­mous with killer rock, and this show pre­sented by Brochella in as­so­ci­a­tion with RAM is no ex­cep­tion.

The elec­tron­i­core act, I See Stars, has been break­ing mu­si­cal bound­aries since the re­lease of their Bill­board chart­ing de­but al­bum, 3-D, in 2009 fol­lowed by more highly ac­claimed re­leases.

Their most re­cent re­lease, Tree­house, was re­leased in June 2016 and the band have been on tour pro­mot­ing it glob­ally since then.

With hit tracks such as Run­ning With Scis­sors and Break and Mob­bin’ Out re­ceiv­ing global recog­ni­tion, I See Stars have cre­ated their own unique genre by com­bin­ing elec­tronic mu­sic with heavy gui­tar and met­al­core in­flu­ences.

Join­ing I See Stars on the night are lo­cal heavy­weights Fac­ing The Gal­lows, Truth & Its Bur­den and OneDaySky. JP Sing, the gui­tarist for OneDaySky, is ec­static about per­form­ing along­side I See Stars and his lo­cal coun­ter­parts.

”We couldn’t be more hon­oured to be part of this show. I See are one of our bggest in­flu­ences as a band. We ab­so­lutely love them.

“This show is go­ing to be so much fun and to share the stage with our friends Fac­ing The Gal­lows and Truth & Its Bur­den as well as I See Stars is just a pure priv­i­lege.”

I See Stars will play at Mer­cury Live in Cape Town the fol­low­ing night be­fore re­turn­ing to Gaut­eng to head­line Hal­loween 2018 at Lof­tus.

The an­nual Fright-Night is back on Oc­to­ber 26 with three stages and a scary night of good mu­sic. – Ci­ti­zen Re­porter
