Seoul South Korea

Being a 90s baby in SA we were not exactly on the map. Unknown to those around us (I'm mostly speaking to you America) we heard big and fancy words like Paris, Milan, New York and London and were awestruck by them, you thought if I could just get there my life would be made. Alas, my giant foes of glamour, "the times they are a changing", (thank you, Dylan). With the explosion of the internet, YouTubers, bloggers and buzzwords the world has seen somewhat of a levelling out. Little guys are getting their time to shine and the more obscure capital cities are making their individual marks on the fashion landscape.

Collaboration Editorial

Creativity thrives on collaboration, and that is how this month's They're Wonted Editorial came to life.                             When we first met Debby Van Der Veer from Blandat earlier this year, we were instantly drawn to her intense energy and tenacity towards her creations. Debby's fabrics erupt in an amalgamation of colours, patterns and techniques, all of which thrive in every environment in which they come to live. Debby's main focus is on creating the textiles themselves, what you choose to create from them is up to your own imagination. I have seen these works of art, as chairs and wallpaper, as cushions and kimonos, as shoes and even bags, there truly are no limitations. To see more of Blandat's work visit her Website and...
