MEET THE first six PARTICIPANTS
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.
