Nkhensani Nkosi covers the July 2013 issue of True Love Magazine. Nkhensani is the founder of lifestyle fashion brand, Stoned Cherrie and is married to former TV presenter Zam Nkosi. She is turning 40 this year, even though she doesn’t like she’s past her early 30′s and in the article she takes us through themes of every decade of her life. She talks about freedom fighting in her teens, finding love with Zam and being an actress in her twenties, her thriving fashion label, being a businesswoman and settling in to being a mom to her four children in her thirties. Entering into her forties she talks about being healthy, possibly going back on stage to act and continuing to inspire people.
I have always admired Nkhensani Nkosi’s achievements in the fashion industry and even though I cannot always afford to buy her label (Stoned Cherrie), I am still a big fan. I am planning to wear a dress from her label for my traditional wedding (whenever that will be?!) as a treat for myself for my special day.
When I saw her on the cover of this month’s DESTINY magazine, I immediately picked it up and bought it and I was not disappointed after reading the feature about her. She always comes across as approachable, grounded, friendly and optimistic and because she always shares all the challenges that she has been through and faced in her journey with her fashion label, it reminds us that she’s normal and not the uber fashion queen I sometimes imagine her to be. I love and admire her style, she doesn’t always follow trends which is what makes her always stand out .
Below is the behind the scenes footage of her cover shoot for DESTINY magazine. It provides further insight into the wonderful, South African fashion icon that Nkhensani is.
