I had the honour of being invited to the Bokeh South African International Lifestyle and Fashion Film Festival last week, at a lavish red carpet event. This is the 5th year of existence for the festival, which brings together creatives in the Film, Fashion, Artistic and related technical industries to celebrate their craft twice a year. The event is held in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, and I attended the latter, at Shepstone Gardens.
Forever 21 opened its doors in Nelson Mandela Square in Johannesburg this past Saturday, 17 October 2015. I was invited to the media launch last week, and found other “fashionistas” who were as eager as I, to get a first glance at the merchandise on offer.
I would say Forever 21, as the name suggests, is aimed at the teenage to late 20’s market, with some items geared towards the older age groups. The prices are very attractive and affordable for most items. There are some statements pieces that retail for around R450, such as this little number that I have my eye on.
