There was such a stir on the web and among this blog’s readers about the stylish gentleman of the Congo that I wanted to give a shout out to the photographer Nontsikelelo Veleko and her portraits of street style in South Africa.
Veleko reminds me of The Sartorialist in some ways, but without the superficial and recycled gloss of designer labels. This is original, creative style at it’s best, in one of the world’s most alive and hippest cities: Johannesburg. I was blown away by the outfits I saw on the streets of that town, and Veleko manages to capture the daily sidewalk fashion show in her photos.
Go here for more of her photography.
