Crushing On Minna Tau Fashion House

Summer is back and with a vengeance, are we not just burning and melting here in the midlands?
How is the rest of South Africa faring?

My birthday is around the bend, being a January goddess, but I guess the celebrations came early as I got the chance to work with Minna Tau Fashion House on their SS16/17 social media campaign this year. This was my very first project of this nature as NONA ZURI & it certainly feels like a reward to be able to produce something of this magnitude within this year. 

Birthday is looming,
Christmas is calling
I'm still in work mode

Enough about me; Minna Tau is the breath of fresh air local design has been waiting for.
(Have we been waiting though? I'm not sure but still...)
Inhale, exhale & witness a sensation proudly produced in the rustic town of Ladysmith, Kwa-Zulu Natal. Though the Minna Tau studio is found in Ladysmith, her garments can be found in Johannesburg & Durban at The Space at The Zone, Rosebank & The Pavilion respectively.

Below is my feature NZ for Minna Tau, cinematography by Lindinhlanhla Rudolph, of behind the scenes footage at the shoot for the social media campaign #RewardYourself 




The campaign is centered around 4 different women; a creative, a healer, a corporate climber & an activist ending off their year & retiring into the festive season clad in Minna Tau. Throughout the campaign we encourage women to reward themselves for a year of hard work. 
The brand is passionate about empowerment & so the ideas of  hard work to have what you want & being self assured enough  to celebrate yourself & treat yourself the way you want to be treated are important to the creator, Zama Phetla. 

We also had Cinematographer Lindinhlanhla Rudolph from Ladysmith media house NOKWIM there to snap some Behind The Scenes Shots some of which you can see below:

It was also important that women from every background & of every shape feel like they can be a part of Minna Tau because that's what the brand is truly about, inclusively exclusive for every woman everywhere who is a trendsetter & lover of style.
