For the past few months Somerset Jane has been available at Burgundy Fly stores. Located in five of Gauteng’s best shopping malls, and available at their online store, they are easily accessible and most definitely worth a visit. SJ has found such success working with, and supplying this proudly local chain of stores.
On trying to make the most of a recent stay in Cape Town, we woke up early to shoot some looks at Muizenberg Beach. It ended up being so super windy (extremely annoying with short hair), that I ended up closer to the water than I’d like, with wind swept hair and a constant stream of tears from sand, wind and sea. I can complain ‘cos I’m not a model – insert smiley face. I’ve sat with these shots for a while now wandering if they really speak for the designs..
Over the past two and a half years I’ve had the exciting, difficult and now sad task of opening and closing the Somerset Jane stores. Two beautiful and inspiring spaces that I poured my heart and soul into, and were for that time, the hub of all the label’s movements. They were the start of many changes and cemented the SJ brand on the local fashion scene. Or so I thought. Turns out, I am Somerset Jane, not the four walls it is housed in nor a sign outside a shop front. What I thought was ending was only just the beginning..
