When Somizi has something on his heart, you know he’s going to spill the beans. The TV host recently slammed fame hungry fashion designers for being more interested in becoming celebs, than pushing their brands.
It’s no secret that the Idols SA judge loves everything fashionable, often being dressed by some of South Africa’s most sought after designers.
During one of his chats on Metro FM’s Breakfast Show with DJ Fresh, Somizi said he was amazed by the talent in SA. However, the DJ said he was concerned about the amount of designers out there currently who think they are celebrities.
Somizi highlighted his concerns at the Durban Fashion Fair too:
“South African designers’ work should speak for itself versus them pushing the face before their work.”
He said some designers want to be famous:
“I don't want to know the designer's face. I want to know the designer's work."
Furthermore, Somizi said some designers also need to know that not every person is meant to design couture. According to a report by TshisaLIVE, Somizi believes some designers should look to work on everyday clothing to push their brand.
It’s no secret that Somizi's wardrobe team includes some big names, which includes his trusted designer, Anita Ferreira. Briefly.co.za learned that Anita designed his MTV VMA outfit in 2017. It’s believed the outfit cost more than R40 000.
