”Gorejous Man” Fashion Collection

1

I have always seen and noticed so many gorejous ladies been dressed by ”Tracy Gore”. Who i soon got to know as a fashion owner and a designer for the brand ”Gorejous”. The brand was started out by Tracy who after losing her job in the film industry had to go and seek alternative employee, which in her case ended up in a business and fashion brand.

Gorejous-Man-Cover-Banner”Being a fashion designer has always been a dream of mine so after getting retrenched from the film industry, unable to find a job, i decided to create one and finally take the step of building my dream job. I taught myself to sew and through hard work and determination Gorejous was born. 

I’ve dressed some of the most Gorejous women in South Africa as well as being featured in Elle and Cosmopolitan magazine.

For the past 5 years I have been asked countless times by guys when I was going to cater for the Gorejous men in South Africa but I have always been a little afraid.Finally this year I decided it was time to step out of my comfort zone and launch Gorejous Man If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough… springs to mind 

The line is full of prints which I’m known for but also a subtle way for men to introduce colour into their wardrobes, slowly allowing guys to be a little more daring and have some fun with basics tees and sweatshirts.”

Check out the complete ”Gorejous Man” summer collection. If you want to place an order, you can place orders which can be delivered all over Mzansi on her website.

Puma – ”Trinomic Tuesday”

0

Its funny when you talk to the guys who label themselves as ”Sneakerheads’‘ and you ask them ”So what sneakers do you own?” and the only thing they say are ”Nike Air Jordans”, which according to wikipedia is the correct answer if we were still living in the year 1985.

The perks of my job as a footwear buyer, I engage and meet the people who basically put on the shoes of the thousands of feet in Mzansi. I have never been a PUMA kind-of-guy when it came to any of their sneakers, as it reminded me of that little speedcat either next to a BMW or Ferrari badge. Which when you speak to any oak on the street, will mention that it was worn by a very specific market and was dressed up with bootleg jeans.

I then i got a chance a cop my first pair of ”Puma R698 Splatter pack” sneaker, which if you were following the blog would have seen made quite a few appearances on social media channels. And after copping this pair and than dedicating it to #TrinomicTuesdays which i been wearing ever since only on a Tuesday. I needed to get my hands or rather my feet in a few more of these little sneakers.
