Can’t wait for summer? well so can’t I. To get you even more excited, wait until you see the collection, to be released locally in September.

Recently the 5FM DJ, MC and TV presenter Poppy Ntshonhwana was named as the local face for the Italian shoe brand, Superga. Ntshongwana joins an array of fashion and celebrity heavyweights around the world such as Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Suki Waterhouse and Chiara Ferragni.

According to Elle Magazine SA, “Poppy will have her own range, hand-picked from the wider summer collection. The collection will include lace high tops, silver flatforms and tropical print slimlines. The campaign will be shot by AFI Best Fashion Photographer Ross Garrett.”

After the announcement, Poppy (@mynameispoppy) tweeted:

‘Officially part of the Superga family. I’m the face of Summer 2014/2015. My range comes out in September. HAPPINESS and excitement’

‘My Superga range will be available countrywide from September…. can’t wait for you to see them! WHOOP! #PoppySuperga’

 

It’s amazing to see our very own stars shining and get recognized not only at home but also abroad such as Bonang Matheba who became one of the brand ambassadors and first south african faces of Revlon – representing the Proudly South African Style. In the spirit of women’s month, Shout out to all the ladies/sisters doing their thing and making it for themselves.
