FASHIONISTA OF THE MONTH:NOMVULA NUNZO MASHIANE

Published January 26, 2012 by fashionations

So I decided to turn this Month’s “Fashionista of the month” feature into an interview. Hope you will like it

ME:Who is Nomvula Mashiane?

NUNZO:A student; a daughter; a sister- she’s many things to many people! But most importantly, a lover of life, a bubbly human being and a child of God

ME:Congradulations on being our fashionasta of the month. So what is fashion to you?

NUNZO:Thank You! Fashion is a non verbal language; it’s a means of expression for me- you can say a lot about yourself through fashion without saying anything at all. I could describe it in many words, but the latter is that fashion is timeless.

ME: How would you discribe your personal style?

NUNZO:I’m a risk taker (especially for someone chubby) I can be sophisticated, chic and elegant; and be casual and simple at other times. I like exploring as many styles as possible

ME: I’m glad you mentioned your weight. Do u think fashion caters for skinny girls more than it does 4 curvy sisters?

NUNZO: Fashion caters different sizes in different ways- it would seem that sometimes, it caters mostly for skinny peopl, but ultimately, certain trends comes with risks- chubby/thick people consider comfort first before engaging in a certain trend- it all boils down to confidence.

ME:Who inspires you fashion-wise?

NUNZO:I’m inspired by a lot of people fashion wise- I even follow men’s fashion!

ME:Any fashion Icons?

NUNZO:Bonang Matheba, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian… Ironic that all the people I mentioned are not chubby right? That’s where the challenge lies!

ME:Favourite designers? (Both locally and internationally)

NUNZO:DFC and Gert Johan Coetzee locally; Vera Wang internationally

ME:Favourite stores?

NUNZO: I’m a student, so I look for bargains! Mr Price, Legit, Meltz & Edgars- for now!

ME:Essential items for any girl in your opinion?

NUNZO:Lipgloss/ lip stuff, wet wipes/ pocket tissues, hand cream and shades!

ME:Thank you for your time. Any last words?

NUNZO:You have no excuse not to look fabulous- even a smile is a great accesory
